    Event description

    AMBS Ecology & Heritage would like to invite everyone to attend the 21st SHAP workshop on 17 May 2024 at the Australian National Maritime Museum ahead of National Archaeology Week.

    It is a chance to hear from terrestrial and maritime heritage professionals, students and academics on the latest archaeological sites and research in Sydney.

    SHAP 2024 Theme: Change and influence

    New South Wales was a colony that depended heavily on its maritime links. This year’s SHAP focuses on the colony’s connections and breaks with the wider worlds of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Distance, technology, trade, migration, and the Australian landscape all influenced whether it was continuity or change that prevailed in the colony. From the vernacular architecture of worker’s houses, to butchery practices, boatbuilding and lunacy law, what came from across the sea either forcibly shaped or was forever transformed by its remote destination.

    A full programme will be available closer to the date.

    Doors open at 8.30 with coffee and tea available. Morning tea and Lunch will be provided at the museum. Please indicate any dietary requirements in your registration.

    As with all coming of age celebrations a speech will be made before the day concludes at the Terminus Hotel Pyrmont, a short walk from the museum. A complimentary drink voucher will be provided.
