Heritage Festival

2016 Heritage Festival logo

The 2016 theme—Discovery and rediscoveries—signifies our ever evolving history and new findings. When we discover and uncover things through archaeology and exploration we can sometimes find there is a need to rewrite our history books. Discoveries can vary from careful planning and research to an unexpected find—an exciting ‘eureka’ moment.  Discovery leads change and rediscovery can open wounds and lead to acknowledgement and healing.

We invite you to dig up the past and re-explore your region. Expose something previously unknown about you and your past.
