Given that the 6th Australasian Housing Researchers’ Conference. “Housing in an Era of Risk and Crisis”. Is running from the 8-10 Februrary at The University of Adelaide we thought it would be a good time for Tim Brunero to speak with Professor Andrew Beer about the problems and future plans for Adelaide’s skyline.
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.

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.
