Where: Queensland Museum Discovery Centre, Level 3
When: Tuesday 16 May 1pm - 2pm

Dig out your hand brush, dust off your tape measure and get ready to reveal your inner archaeologist because we're celebrating National Archaeology Week #2017NAW!

On Tuesday 16 May, we're Mapping the Past with Queensland Museum Curator Geraldine Mate

Historical maps can tell us many things about the past, not least of all how people saw the landscape they lived in. In this Meet our Curator session, Geraldine Mate explores the maps of Mount Shamrock in conjunction with newspaper accounts of the day to show how a sense of 19th century gold mining in Queensland can emerge.
