Up Goer Five Challenge

UWA Archaeology Seminar Series

Using only the most commonly used English words this seminar will treat you to the state of PhD research in archaeology from Archaeology at UWA. The remainder of this abstract is written using only the ten hundred words people use the most often, which is also known as Up Goer Five.

We look at old things from the past and what people did with them and why. We have not finished looking at those old things at this place with many books and people reading them. The talks are by both students and teachers and will be about their work and then how writing this talk was hard. Each talk will be short and will be about:

  • How long did people from the past in the north west wear small hard white things from the sea to make themselves look beautiful? Fiona Hook
  • Putting rock art together with other old things by seeing where it is to know if from long ago or not so long ago Lucia Clayton Martinez
  • Did people who lived near the beach north of here always eat sea food?  Carly Monks
  • The study of a shop owner’s life a long time ago when the city north of the big city was still a small town Melissa Hetherington
  • When water does not run: understanding life on the streets of the big town up the river Sven Ouzman, Rebecca Foote, Natasha Busher, Liam Phillips
