Introduction*

An exhibition at the National Archives of Australia in 2002 put on view the remarkable drawings made by Marion Mahony Griffin for her husband Walter Burley Griffin’s designs, the designs that won the 1912 competition for Australia’s new national capital in Canberra. Within those designs is an archaeological element, not before noticed, which we report in this note.

*Note that an abstract was not included with this paper, and so the introductory paragraph has been included here instead of the abstract.
