In the spring of last year a flock of archaeologists from Flinders University headed down to Penola and started digging for history, trying to find clues to the early years of Australia’s first patron Saint, Mary Mackillop.
Last time the team uncovered an 1839 coin, a thimble, a marble and some bottle fragments. A success, yes, but they of course wanted more.
Well the team is back in full force this year and Tim Brunero spoke to Team Leader, Associate Professor Heather Burke about what they hope to uncover this time.
