Jaime Grant, Writes: 
I just finished my studies in Edinburgh in August this year (MA History, Dundee University 
MSc Archeology, University of Edinburgh) and have decided to spend the next year at least in NZ. While am I here I would like to continue to gain archaeological experience. I am a dedicated and hardworking individual and would definitely be an asset on site. Through my degrees I have extensively studied the history and archaeology of indigenous peoples, while primarily on Native Americans I have done research modules on Aboriginal and Maori topics. While I have been in Edinburgh have been working to gain experience in the field and I have spent a lot of time this year helping to digitize the Gordon Chile collection at the University of Edinburgh along with working extensively with 3d computer programs to make digital reconstructions and photogrammetry.
I spent this summer working in Italy on the Apolline project at Aeclanum. During this dig I was the assistant to the site botanist and spent most of my time outside of digging helping with flotation, sorting finds and helping with the digital recording.

A 21st century infrastructure project has unearthed a piece of Sydney's 19th century past.

It's where generations have enjoyed a great view of the harbour, little knowing beneath their feet lay an archeological treasure trove, buried for decades.



A hundred-year-old, early tungsten filament light globe has remarkably been uncovered at our Town Hall Station archaeology site. \
