Photoblog: Barunga Field School 2016, Day Three

Saturday 09/07/2016

On day three, the group split up and focussed on something different. One group visited a youth camp in a neighbouring community, Werenbun, where they recorded contemporary Christian practices and material culture. The second group visited the historical Maranboy tin mine to record artefact scatters associated with the now closed mine. The final group set up the Total Station at the King River tourist rest stop on the Stuart Highway to produce a site plan for Jordan’s PhD thesis.

In the evening, we were joined by Nell Brown and Margaret Katherine, who shared stories and laughs with the group. Margaret is one of the most captivating storytellers and she had everyone in stitches with her story about her pet cane toad that she uses to get rid of cockroaches!
