    Join David Bannear on a journey of discovery through the various phases of archaeology on the Chinese brick kiln site. Gain an understanding of what drives archaeology since its emergence as a discipline several centuries ago.

    David Bannear is an archaeologist who has been employed by the Victorian Government since 1991. During this time he has worked for numerous departments including Parks Victoria,  Department of Planning & Community Development and now Department of Transport Planning & Local Infrastructure.

    As State archaeologist within Heritage Victoria, David's role involves researching, surveying, documenting, excavating (only occasionally) and making significance assessment of historic sites. David considers an important aspect of his role is educating people about the layers of history and heritage features that make up the landscapes of central Victoria.

    All welcome, no bookings required.
