Abstract

Since opening in 2010, The Big Dig Archaeology Education Centre in Sydney has welcomedover 70,000 students aged 5 to 18 years to participate in school learning programs. Studentsuse the process of inquiry to ‘work like an archaeologist’ in purpose-built classrooms on asite which spans the Colonial to Federation periods of Australian history (1795-1914).
