Exploring the Archaeology of the Modern City project
The ‘Exploring the Archaeology of the Modern City’ project (EAMC) was established in 2001 by Professor Tim Murray of the Archaeology Program of La Trobe University and Industry Partners, to analyse and interpret the large assemblages excavated from historical archaeological sites which are held in storehouses across Sydney. Funding for the project was provided by the Australian Research Council through its Linkage Scheme. The project gave to the analysis of ten discreet household assemblages from the Rocks and an analysis of over 80,000 artefacts from the Hyde Park Barracks and First Government House.
