Celebrate History Week at GML Heritage with an evening of lightning talks.

Join historians and archaeologists from GML Heritage as they explore cultural landscapes, archaeology, forgotten ruins, memory and mythology in a series of condensed talks.

GML Principal, Dr Tim Owen will present on concepts of memory and use of place through the lens of Aboriginal people’s connection to land over thousands of years.

What are some of the places we forget? As part of her 2018 NSW History Fellowship (sponsored by the NSW Government) GML Senior Heritage Consultant, Minna Muhlen-Schulte has been researching the ruins and memorials of Second World War internment camps in Victoria.

GML Senior Heritage Consultant, Brian Shanahan has worked as an archaeologist in Ireland, Victoria and New South Wales for twenty years. He will discuss myth, memory and material in the Irish landscape.

GML Heritage Consultant, Angela So has over 10 years’ experience in archaeology, historical research and interpretation planning. She will explore the ways in which we can interpret memory landscapes for a wide range of audiences and formats.
