The Museum staff at the Heritage Park have been excited with their involvement in the launch of the National Archaeology Week.
This has included researching the extensive Museum collection to find items that can be used for display purposes. A new concept has been to create a display called Drawers of Discovery using a repurposed sideboard that will be located in the exhibition room. From archaeology week this will be filled with a variety of items from the Shantytown Collection that have been found through digs over the last 100 years. Visitors to Shantytown Heritage Park will be able to these view items and discover their provenance.
