Monitoring Earthworks - Saving Time and Money

EBS Heritage can provide archaeological assessment and earthworks monitoring for project areas where there are higher risks of encountering insitu and unregistered heritage sites. While assessments and surveys are the most common and effective risk management strategy for identifying known and high risk areas for heritage sites, some sites cannot be identified until earthworks have commenced.

Current State Legislation carries substantial fines and clients face prosecution if they are found to have disturbed significant heritage sites. While conducting a comprehensive background research (such as a desktop or cultural heritage surveys) and a risk assessment for the project area are valuable tools, engaging a trained archaeologists/heritage specialist to monitor earthworks can completely reduce the likelihood of an unknown heritage site being disturbed. Having an onsite archaeologist, or access to a trained archaeologist can also be beneficial in providing valuable advice in dealing with a discovered site/object and avoiding lost project time.

EBS Heritage Attends Human Remains Workshop

Heritage Manager Guadalupe Cincunegui recently attended an 'Identification of Human Remains in the Field' Workshop in Melbourne run by Marc Oxenham PhD, SFA and Anna Wilson BA (hons) of Australian National University (ANU).

The workshop was developed to provide consultants with the necessary tools for identifying human remains in the field and also importantly how to distinguish between human bones and those of native and introduced and domesticated animals (kangaroos and sheep).

The workshop was extremely useful and EBS can now provide higher levels of certainty in rapidly assessing discoveries of bones in the field, therefore minimising the potential for unnecessary distress to Aboriginal communities as well as costly delays for clients when animal bones are mis-identified. Rapid assessment will also allow us to quickly initiate relevant procedures and protective measures should we encounter human remains in the future.

EBS Heritage Goes Back to School!

EBS Heritage Manager Guadalupe was invited to St Francis de Sales College in Mt. Barker to speak with a class of year 2/3 students about working as an archaeologist and the Cultural Heritage of the Mt Barker area.

This visit tied in perfectly with a range of cultural heritage projects that EBS Heritage was involved with in the Mt Barker area, and with subjects the students had been focussing on.

As part of their studies, the class had previously toured the Laratinga Wetlands with Peramangk Elder Ivan Copley and observed archaeological monitoring conducted by EBS Heritage at the rear of their school. Students asked many questions about archaeology and were especially fascinated to learn more about the Aboriginal heritage of the Mt Barker area, their questions and comments showed insight beyond their years on issues of heritage identification and protection.
