Professor Susan Lawrence Professor, Archaeology

My research area is the physical evidence of the recent human past. My current research is about the environmental history of water use in the nineteenth-century mining industry and the resultant pollution of rivers. My work has also addressed the archaeology of British colonisation, gender, urban development, and material culture studies. I am a past president of the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology and convene the Victorian Archaeology Colloquium. I am a member of the Heritage Council of Victoria's Archaeology Underwater Cultural Heritage Committee, a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London..
