Colonial Sydney CBD: through the eyes of an archaeologist

This event has been cancelled

4 April 2020

Join us for a free public lecture by Helen Nicholson in our series Travellers in Time.

This lecture takes a look at the Sydney CBD through the eyes of an archaeologist. With a focus on the late 18th, 19th and early 20th century we explore what Sydney was like when the British arrived, where people lived and how the city expanded and changed over time. Traces of this colonial past can still be found in the city today. It concludes with a closer look at The Rocks.

Helen Nicholson developed school and adult education programs at the Nicholson Museum and spent twenty years as a casual lecturer and tutor. She has developed and led many overseas tours and has worked on projects in Sydney, Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Jordan, Uzbekistan and Cambodia. She is a senior team member of the Paphos Theatre excavations in Cyprus and is currently cataloguing and analysing artefacts excavated prior to the construction of the Sydney Harbour YHA.
