What techniques do historians employ? What are their sources of evidence? How do we know what life was like in the past?
A Load of Old Rubbish? focuses on the Little Lon section of The Melbourne Story in the late 1800s. It invites students to consider what we can learn from the rubbish we leave behind.
Students learn more about archaeological practice by working with objects from the 1880s in a facilitated program. They work in community of enquiry teams and are given individualised team handouts to guide their learning in the Little Lon section of Melbourne Story.
