Archaeology and the Deep History of Sea Country

The Deep History of Sea Country project confirmed Australia’s first ancient underwater archaeological sites, located on the seabed off the Murujuga coastline in north-western Australia.

Timed for the eve of National Reconciliation Week (27 May-3 June), this public lecture will follow AMaGA SA Branch’s Annual General Meeting (5.30pm start). Bookings essential.
