HARN WELCOMES NEW MEMBERS
HARN IS GROWING EVEN MORE. PLEASE WELCOME:
I have had a varied career in archaeology, history, museums and cultural heritage. I was a Fellow at the Australian Archaeological Association in Athens and worked on a fishbone collection at the Fitch Laboratory BSA. My doctoral thesis on prehistoric fishing in the Aegean was published in the SIMA series and I went on to study the fishbone collection from the Mesolithic/Neolithic site of Youra in the North Aegean. I worked for over fifteen years in cultural heritage – in particular environmental and forest history – with Queensland National Parks. At The Queensland Museum, I became interested in the stories of collectors.
A chance encounter led to research on the life of Professor Jim Stewart, a Cypriot pre-historian and the first person to teach archaeology in Australia. The book was published in 2013 (see review https://www.australianarchaeologicalassociation.com.au/journal/review-of-loves-obsession/)
I believe in bringing the past alive – and in that vein, am working on a series of historical crime novels!
