AASV LECTURES ARE HELD
ON THE THIRD THURSDAY OF THE MONTH BETWEEN MARCH AND NOVEMBER
IN THE DISCOVERY CENTRE AT MELBOURNE MUSEUM, NICHOLSON STREET, CARLTON
ENTRANCE IS OPPOSITE THE EXHIBITION BUILDING AND START AT 6.30PM
The AASV has a wide and varied membership including members of the general public who are interested to know more about archaeology and anthropology, students and academics studying these disciplines, and professional archaeologists and anthropologists. As can be learned from the history of the Society, it was formed by the joining together of two individual Societies, both of which owed their origin to the interest generated by public lectures given by enthusiastic university teachers.
The society aims to provide a forum for lectures and outings which offer interested individuals an opportunity to learn more about archaeology and anthropology in a friendly environment. The lecture series, which covers a wide range of archaeological and anthropological topics – both Australian and international – take place on the third Thursday of the month, between March and November. Lectures are held in the Discovery Centre at Melbourne Museum, Carlton. The Annual General Meeting is a special occasion with a guest speaker selected for his or her ability to present an excellent and topical lecture.
Field trips of one to two days duration are usually run twice a year and two longer trips have been undertaken in the past few years, one to Mootwingee and the Olary region and the other to Lake Mungo and Sturt National Park.
The Society’s publications are The Artefact, an annual scientific journal, and the Bulletin which is a bi-monthly newsletter providing details of the annual program and a summary of recent lectures.
