Trust archaeologist Leanne Brass explains the Underfloor Archaeology project to volunteers at the NTWA’s Woodbridge: As part of a recently signed MoU between the Trust and UWA, a joint research project aimed at investigating ‘under-floor’ archaeology at selected Trust properties commenced in May 2014. The project is lead by Trust archaeologist Leanne Brass., in partnership with UWA. Archaeological investigation of hidden layers within Perth’s surviving built heritage – under-floors, between floors, in roof and wall-cavities – can reveal significant archaeological evidence. The Trust is committed to careful consideration of all heritage values associated with its properties, including archaeological values.

Phantom Shanghai

Greg Girard moved to Shanghai, China, at the turn of the 21st century. It was a fortuitous time to move to the city. Shangahi had just begun to change rapidly, as a bustling economy, directive from the central government, and economic reforms spurred major development for the first time in 40 years. The city’s ornate and seedy buildings began giving way to skyscrapers, residential towers, and squeaky clean development, as residents were forced out of dilapidated homes. Determined to capture the city before it disappeared, Girard began photographing the city’s old neighborhoods.
