Nineteenth century post-contact Adelaide archaeology

Presented by Dr Keryn Walshe

Post-contact archaeology in the Adelaide region commenced with the arrival of whalers and sealers off Kangaroo Island and Fleurieu Peninsula around 1800. The next one hundred years witnessed the dynamic growth and development of a Victorian-era Adelaide. The archaeology of this century will be presented in overview by looking at sites such as the Adelaide Gaol and the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.

Keryn is a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Humanities Faculty at Flinders University and a Researcher for Archaeology at the South Australian Museum. She is currently President of the Anthropological Society of South Australia.
