Project Title: Indigenous Heritage: Working ancient wetlands for social benefit and cultural understanding.
This research will answer important theoretical and practical questions about Aboriginal community engagement with Heritage research. It will generate significant archaeological outcomes on the nature of Indigenous occupation in ancient eastern Australian landscapes, and this research will also improve the employability of young Aboriginal people. Richardís role in this project is to provide Aboriginal training in lithic analysis and to oversee usewear and residue studies of stone artefacts from excavated sites.
