Archaeology and cemeteries


Assessments within and around registered and unregistered cemeteries can be a complicated undertaking.  The True North archaeology team have a strong understanding of the legislative requirements to successfully complete any project in advance of construction.  

Artifact teaching kit


Each kit can be tailored to your specific area or project, and depending on availability, can be made from local materials. These kits have been used for hands-on training when identifying commonly recovered lithic material, as well as bone and antler implements. 

These teaching kits have been used for a variety of purposes, including Chance Find Management Plans, training new archaeologists or Indigenous Field Schools, and as a useful reference collection showcasing various stages of lithic reduction and common tool types.

Reproductions are packaged in individual hard clear plastic cases with foam padding, as well as stored in an easy-to-carry hard protective case.
