Barges to gentlemen’s yacht’s: the archaeology of the port of Perth 1830-1900
Fiona Hook from the Australian Archaeology Association will speak about the archaeological evidence recently found from the construction of the first Perth Jetty in 1830 through to the eventual burying of both the Reveley and Barrack Street jetties under landfill by 1900 as part of Perth Heritage Days.
The changing Port of Perth landscape and its resultant impact on the archaeology will also be discussed.
The event is FREE, but bookings are essential via heritageperth.com.au. Fiona spoke to Harvey Deegan on Remember When.
