The Uncovered Past Institute runs archaeology projects based on public participation.

Join our excavations and explore the history that lies under the surface of Australia. Any one interested in learning more about archaeology and history is welcome to take part.

Our next excavation, in October 2017, will uncover the secrets of a 19th century Chinese gold-mining village in northeast Victoria, Australia. See Harrietville Chinese Mining Village for more details.
