The Royal Australian Historical Society presents a National Archaeology Week Event

Presenter: Dr Matthew Kelly

The Second World War has left a lasting impression in Papua New Guinea, and forms a crucial part in the relationship between PNG and Australia. Matthew Kelly is leading the archaeological investigation of a number of WWII sites in PNG, including Eora Creek, a battlefield on the Kokoda Track; and ‘Blamey’s Garden’, an intricate horticultural folly near Owers’ Corner. These sites are well known to the local landowners and villagers, but not to the wider community, and the evidence has much to add to the history of the Pacific War. Matthew’s projects also involve recording the stories of the locals, sometimes with very different results from the archaeological interpretation.

About the presenter: Matthew is an archaeologist, specialising in the historical archaeology of Australia. Previously he has worked on Australian colonial sites such as the Mint and the Big Dig site in the Rocks Sydney and the Government Cottage, Newcastle. The PNG projects have drawn on Matthew’s interest in and knowledge of military heritage, and given him a deeper appreciation of near vertical ascents to site.
