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.
