Twilight Archaeology Talk
Toowoomba’s resident archaeologists, Professor Bryce Barker and Dr Lara Lamb speak about their most recent ‘digs’ and discoveries.
Lecturers in Anthropology at USQ, the duo have worked on a range of ground-breaking projects including most recently, the Narwala Gabarnmang site in remote Northern Territory, where they uncovered the oldest rock art discovered in Australia.
Their archaeological adventures have also led to extensive work on pre-European Aboriginal archaeology in the Whitsunday/Bowen region; to Papua New Guinea looking at the antiquity, origins and extent of the pottery trade along the coast; and local sites at the Eagles Nest Depression camp in Redwood Park, the old Toowoomba jail and the Ballard Cottage ruin.
This talk includes a post-show reception with the speakers - light refreshments will be served.
