Dear AAA members,

The AAA media liaison officers Liz Vaughan and Peter Veth are putting a call out to the AAA membership for newsworthy stories on current research or events in Australian archaeology. The role of the AAA media liaison officers is to promote the work and objectives of the AAA and its membership through the media to the wider public.

Members are encouraged to pitch stories on any cutting-edge and significant archaeological work they are undertaking, which can be distributed to the media in order to promote Australian archaeology, studies of Aboriginal cultural heritage, historic and maritime archaeology and the work generally of Australian archaeologists both nationally and internationally.

For members who would like to have their research profiled in the media, please send a short summary with pertinent information to AAA media liaison officer Liz Vaughan (University of Western Australia) at

Kind regards,

Martin Porr (AAA Secretary)
