Short doco about Indigenous Archaeology at the Cotter

By Barcham - 14 October 2013 1

ACTEW Water have put out a 15 minute short film about digging up artifacts at the Cotter.

Get yourself a coffee and have a watch if you’re keen.

This 15 minute film looks back at the Indigenous archaeological program undertaken at the site of the new Cotter Dam between 2008 and 2013, with the eventual return to country of many sacred artefacts.

[Documentary maker Richard Snashall works with ACTEW Water to help us capture and document the Enlarged Cotter Dam and other water security projects for our Heritage Archive.]

Wow. I never realised how much heritage is in the ACT area.
What an awesome idea to return the artefacts to the area they came form.
