Something New - Recent historical archaeological discoveries & innovations

What new research are you doing, or what new sites or have you worked on that Sydney historical archaeologists haven’t heard about before? What new ways are you managing your site data or new technologies are you using to record it? What new part of Sydney’s history have you discovered?

Presentations and papers are being sought for this workshop from students, academics and heritage professionals from both government and heritage consultancies who want the wider archaeological community to know what new research they have been doing, what new results they have, or what new sites have they been excavating.
