NWS Shipping Theatre
Ever wondered how archaeologists can make famous and important claims? Well it all links to an enormous process that starts with a thought and ends with presentations like this.
Join us during National Archaeology Week to celebrate International Museum Day, as Jennifer Craig she shares insight into the general steps in an archaeologists career and how museums play a vital role in developing our knowledge of human ancestry. Jennifer is working with the Western Australian Museum to learn how one of the best museums in the world keeps track of their artefacts. It is especially important for her professional focus that all the archaeologists in the Department of Maritime Archaeology are trained and practiced in the sub-discipline of underwater archaeology because its techniques and specific considerations are different from terrestrial archaeology. Jennifer will discuss the difference in how these approaches assist early-career archaeologists who are developing their specialized area of interest.
Jennifer Craig has received a 2012 Endeavour Executive Award in Australia. She will participate in the Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project from March to July 2012 with a focus on a Southeast Asian ceramics collection.
