Meet our Curator: Surviving Drought

Join Queensland Museum Curator of Archaeology Dr Brit Asmussen for this fascinating discussion. What strategies did Aboriginal Australians use to overcome the peak drought events of the last 5000 years? We can all appreciate how fickle the Australian climate can be, with frequent severe droughts and floods. Imagine surviving these events without any modern conveniences, and for multiple generations.

This event is part of our program of talks and presentations for National Archaeology Week (19 – 25 May 2013).

Discovery Centre, Level 3. Free.
Thursday 23 May, 1-2 pm.
