Valuing Indigenous Archaeology in Western Australia


This research aims to investigate the processes through which Indigenous archaeological sites are attributed value and assessed for significance.

Why my research is important

This project will make substantial contributions to both theory and praxis in archaeological significance and cultural heritage management by providing new empirical evidence, analysis and theorising on the valuing and significance assessment processes.
