Original Maryborough Town Archaeology

Converge has undertaken a series of excavations across the Queensland heritage-listed Original Maryborough Town Site. 

The first of these in 2007 included a large, open excavation of approximately 14,000m² undertaken to assess the archaeological potential of the site and to allow suitably informed discussions between Council and the Heritage Council regarding the proposed curtilage.

These excavations focussed on structures identified during the 1852 survey of the original township site and uncovered hundreds of historic artefacts including clay pipes, coins, glass, stoneware, and transfer ware.

Interestingly, a considerable number of Aboriginal stone tools were also identified during the course of these (and later) excavations, with the Butchulla people assisting Converge in the management of these finds.

Converge subsequently undertook an archaeological excavation of three sites within the Queensland heritage-listed Original Maryborough Town Site for the Maryborough Open House in 2013. Each of the sites were selected in order to answer different research questions and increase our knowledge of the archaeological potential of the site.

The excavations helped improve our knowledge about the archaeological potential of the town site as well as answer other pertinent research questions. Select artefacts were cleaned and interpreted by Converge, and added to the permanent display of the archaeology of the site sourced from the 2007 excavations which is located at the Customs House Museum, Maryborough.

Most recently, Converge has completed further archaeological excavations at the site in April of 2015, with the methodology designed to complement the 2007 excavation areas and broaden our overall knowledge regarding the archaeological potential of the site.
