Event description

Description

The Sydney Historical Archaeology Practitioners' (SHAP) Workshop is a one day workshop held annually during National Archaeology Week for practitioners, students and those interested in historical archaeology and heritage. We come together to share ideas, recent projects, technology and developments for historical archaeology in NSW.

This year's theme is The Role of Archaeology in Heritage Conservation.

Effective heritage conservation is crucial for the preservation, understanding and interpretation of the past. A number of recent developments across Australian major urban hubs and their surrounds resulted in the discovery of important and rare archaeological sites and artefacts that are able to provide a wealth of information. However, not all sites can be retained and not all of the artefacts can be displayed. This year’s SHAP is the opportunity for the industry practitioners to present the most recent archaeological discoveries and the ways they have been conserved. This gathering can also be an initiation for greater participation and presentation of Australian historical archaeology at the next ICOMOS GA and Scientific Symposium that will be hosted by Sydney in 2020.

Tickets include morning tea, lunch and post-workshop drinks and canapés.
