On August 4th, managers and administrators of the state historical bodies affiliated with FAHS met with the FAHS Outreach Officer Bernadette Flynn. The meeting was hosted at the headquarters of the Royal Historical Society Victoria with representatives from History SA (Allison Russell), RHSQ (Ilona Fekete), and RHSV (Kate Prinsley). Professor Don Garden, President of the FAHS welcomed managers to the meeting and briefly outlined the scope of the FAHS activities. He reported on the new appointments for stage two of the GLAM Peak Digital Access to Collections. He outlined the next training guide on born-digital data and the changes to copyright law and how they will be of benefit to the work of historical societies. 

The FAHS Outreach Officer described two of the current FAHS projects in Collections and Access (report and survey) and the Succession Planning Guide. She also outlined the new look website proposal under review and spoke about the history clinic.
The state representatives discussed local issues and spoke about the need to obtain further information on community history to better serve societies. The succession planning guide and survey were seen as valuable contributions towards this goal.

Allison Russell reported on the successful SA History Festival Program and new formats for leaning how to inspire and engage people with history. The group shared examples of successful historical societies and proposed strategies for working collaboratively into the future. The importance of attracting and retaining volunteers and ways of measuring this legacy were discussed by Ilona Fekete. Kate Prinsley spoke about data archive methods and implementing a CRM for managing member records. A report from Christine Worthington on RHSV’s migration to the eHive collection management system was tabled.

Call for Papers - FAHS Newsletter 
FAHS Call for Papers for the December 2017 issue of the FAHS Newsletter
Theme: Collaboration & Participation
Submission Date: Fri 13th October 2017
Community participation is recognised as an important factor in running an historical society or community heritage group. Many societies have much experience in this regard and have developed productive models of involvement and collaboration. These forms of collaboration help develop new networks and activate local interest in history. They are also critical in obtaining support and ensuring that the society is recognised and rewarded.
The forthcoming issue of the FAHS newsletter explores ways that historical societies are engaging with the wider community and activating networks. These networks may be local and geographically close or they may be remote and distributed.
The FAHS is looking for articles that address the topic of collaboration and participation. Articles that relate more generally to matters of local history and community heritage are also welcome.
Articles are invited of up to 800 words, The FAHS newsletter is distributed via our contact list, via the FAHS website and on ISSUU. The last newsletter No. 43 on the theme of Doing History can be viewed here.
Please send expressions of interest to the editor Dr Bernadette Flynn, fahsbflynn@gmail.com

GLAM Peak - Digital Acces to Collections Project

Go to www.digitalcollections.org.au and you will find the stories of people who have started from scratch, often with limited IT skills. You can read about their successes and failures, and how they have achieved:

  • Greater awareness of their holdings
  • More visitors coming to see the physical items
  • Unexpected partnerships with other local organisations
  • The satisfaction of being part of the national and international movement to unlock collections for everyone.

There is a toolkit taking you through the process step-by-step, from planning and digitising individual items, through to making the most of your collection online.

There will be face-to-face workshops around the country in 2017-2018. More information will go up on the website as dates and locations are confirmed.

The Digital Access to Collections project is an initiative of GLAM Peak, funded by the Commonwealth Government’s Catalyst program.

The Madjedbebe Rock Shelter - Australia's Oldest Documented Site

Scientists Dr Elspeth Hayes (left) with Mark Djandjomerr (centre) and May Nango (right) at the dig site. Photo: Dominic O Brien/Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation.

Archaeological excavations at a site near Kakadu National Park have pushed back the date of human arrival in Australia by up to 18,000 years. So how did scientists come up with that date?

Located in Mirarr Country, 300 kilometres east of Darwin, the Madjedbebe rock shelter sits at the base of the Arnhem Land escarpment on a sandy plain.

At around 65,000 years old, it is Australia's oldest documented site, according to a new study by a team of Australian scientists in the journal Nature.

The key to establishing the dates of a site like this comes down to the techniques used to excavate and date the site. 

A previous excavation of the rock shelter nearly 30 years ago led by Professor Bert Roberts of University of Wollongong indicated the site could have been up to 60,000 years old, but the date was disputed based on the techniques and technologies used at the time.

To settle the debate, Dr Chris Clarkson, Professor Roberts and colleagues returned to site in 2012 and 2015 with permission from the traditional owners from the Mirarr clan.

'The purpose of that was to go back and test a whole lot of things about the site,' Dr Clarkson, of the University of Queensland, said......

At the lowest level of the site they found:
  • The world's oldest-known ground-edge axe
  • Australia's oldest-known grinding stone
  • Flakes and points, probably used as spear tips
  • Ochre and the world's oldest-known sheets of mica — a reflective mineral used to enhance paintings
  • Evidence of a hearth
Professor Roberts said it was unclear why the artefacts were distributed in this pattern.
'This might equate to less frequent site visits by people and/or less intensive use of the sites per visit,' he said.

He said the types of artefacts recovered from the three bands also differ in various ways.
'This might indicate site occupancy by either different groups of people or descendants of the same group of people who chose to make different tools with the passage of time,' he said.

The three-dimensional position of the artefacts were recorded digitally using modern surveying techniques.

'This means you can actually record the position of thousands artefacts in their original location and visualise these on a computer screen,' Professor Roberts said.

Some of the artefacts were analysed for microscopic evidence of grinding or exposure to plant or animal material.

'So you can work out not only how the tool was made, but what it was used for as well' Professor Roberts said.

After all the artefacts have been analysed next year, they will be returned to the traditional owners under a landmark agreement between the Mirarr people and the researchers.

Sale of the Sydney GPO in Martin Place
'Of architectural significance as one of the finest 19th century public buildings in Australia. It features excellent Victorian carved stonework and is a monument to the important Colonial Architect - James Barnet. It is also of environmental significance as the key element in the Martin Place streetscape'
Statement of Significance - State Heritage Inventory.

The federal minister for the environment and energy Josh Frydenberg will not intervene in the sale of the freehold of the Sydney GPO to Singapore’s Far East Organisation and its sister company Sino Land Company.

The sale, which was revealed by The Australian in May, later became the subject of a public campaign due to heritage concerns raised by heritage consultants and the Clover Moore-led council.

Radio broadcaster Alan Jones also queried the sale last week and the post office will now seek National Heritage listing for the Sydney GPO.

Although it has sold out of the complex, it cites the building’s historical importance and says it has acted to reinforce existing heritage protections.

The transaction was valued at about $150 million and adds to Far East Organization/Sino Land’s interest in the overall complex where it already holds a 99-year lease on the site and owns the adjoining Westin Hotel.

Frydenberg this week notified Australia Post that he accepted the existing Heritage Management Plan attached to the sale, paving the way for the deal to be completed.

Australia Post general manager of property Adam Treffry says the nomination for National Heritage listing will be made jointly and in full co-operation with Far East/Sino Land. The pair have a long track records in conserving heritage buildings, including The Fullerton Building in Singapore, which was once home to Singapore’s GPO.

'While the existing heritage plan already ensured the protection of the Sydney GPO, National Heritage listing would further reinforce the historical importance of the site to the benefit of future generations,' he says.

'If successful, the building would join other iconic sites including the Australian War Memorial, Sydney Opera House and Bondi Beach covered by the highest level of heritage protections in the country.'

Ai Lian Fang, the chair of Far East’s Australia properties executive committee, says Sydney GPO will be a marvellous addition to the National Heritage List.

'We are deeply respectful of the Sydney GPO’s historical significance to Australians. We are fully committed to operating the property in a way that will honour its rich heritage,' she says.

The planned sale of the Sydney GPO was announced in May, after an expression of interest process in relation to Australia Post’s GPO property portfolio, including the Sydney GPO, last year.
That process involved 40 organisations identified to have extensive property experience, including Australian and foreign-owned entities.

The Australian revealed last year that the original process was called off but talks began with Far East/Sino Land after its response identified what was seen as the best commercial outcome, while meeting the post office’s stringent heritage requirements.

An updated Heritage Management plan is attached to the sale to ensure the ongoing protection of the site.

Australia Post has not actually operated the site since the late 1990s when it handed over management under the terms of the 99-year leasehold. The post office based at the GPO will continue to operate under a sublease.

Featured Historical Society - Cairns Historical Society
The Cairns Historical Society was founded in 1958 to record and preserve the history of North Queensland, Australia.

The society owns and operates the Cairns museum, the Cairns Historical Society Research Centre and the History on the Move School Trailer Program.
The Cairns Historical Society focuses on the history of Far North Queensland and making this history accessible for current and future generations. Since 1958 CHS has been actively collecting from across the Far North Queensland region and working cooperatively with smaller historical societies. It now manages a nationally significant collection of over 60,000 individual items. As the Cairns library does not undertake any historical activity the society has been well placed to be the hub for historical research in the region.

The Society is managed by volunteers, with the support of three paid staff members (museum manager, volunteer coordinator and operations manager). The society has an active volunteer base of around 80 people, as well as a broader membership of local, national and international supporters. The society has attracted volunteers through offering engagement in an exciting venture and advertising widely.  New people have joined and longer term volunteers have been retained through events, excursions and training opportunities for the members and volunteers. The President brings solid business and networking skills to CHS. These skills have helped to install good governance structures and to obtain financial and corporate support for the organisation. A sponsorship scheme is in place with major and platinum sponsors, patrons and donors.

For many years the society has worked closely with the Cairns Regional Council and in 2014 received operational funding for the first time. The society lobbied for an upgrade to the state heritage listed School of Arts Building to include the museum and the research centre successfully arguing that the operations of the society were an important part of the heritage significance of the building.  Between 2013 and 2017, the council invested $8.69 million into the renovation of the Cairns School of Arts and a further $1.6 million into the upgrade and refurbishment of the Cairns Museum and the Cairns Historical Society. As part of this process the society renewed its branding, website, vision and mission, IT and financial management systems.  

The museum manager, Suzanne Gibson outlined some of the reasons for the success of CHS.  The organisation has a public service mentality and believes that CHS exists for the people of Cairns and not for the society. It is outward looking with many of the members being teachers and educators as well as locals. They have good corporate governance and a willingness to consider changing. CHS has been an early adopter of technology and over the years developed a solid reputation and a good track record in enabling history and heritage in the community.  Suzanne emphasises the importance for any historical society to stay engaging, giving and open. 

Between 2010 and 2012 the society developed a new strategic plan, a collections policy, and undertook a significance assessment of its museum, with the assistance of museum planner Kylie Winkworth. This paved the way for rethinking the museum priorities as 'revealing the past and engaging with the present of Cairns as a tropical city'.  The newly reopened museum contains four permanent and one temporary exhibition gallery with themed displays of Cairns over time, the industries that made it prosper and the transformation of a small tropical port into an international tourist city. The society worked with two groups of Traditional Owners, to present exhibitions that reflected their cultural attachments to Cairns as well as their histories of living and working in the town over the last 150 years.

The CHS Research Centre holds more than 60,000 items of personal, professional and Government papers and ephemera; books; unpublished reports; newspapers; photographs; journal articles and maps. The collection covers the area from Cardwell to Normanton and north to the Torres Strait, taking in most of the Wet Tropics, Cape York Peninsula and the eastern Gulf of Carpentaria. Cairns is a particular focus. The entire collection, including photographs (over 27,000 including glass plate negatives) is digitally catalogued and searchable by subject, as well as by author and title fields. The society uses Libcode Library systems and MOSAiC Collection Management software. The catalogue is not available online but archive and photographic researchers are available to assist visitors to search the collection on the premises and can answer queries by email - pull together materials from the collection, copy or digitise and send them. Nicky Horsfall, research manager of CHS notes that retaining volunteers to undertake the arduous task of collections data-entry along with the conservation and preservation of collection items can be challenging.  

The historical society also has a range of local history publications, research and thematic papers for sale. They have also produced a CD of the first 550 local history bulletins, in a word searchable PDF format, which many researchers have found invaluable.

Volunteer guides assist at the museum and with schools programs. School visits offer linked activities based on the latest ACARA curriculum (The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority) . A student kit has been developed providing resources, ideas and activities for teachers to use as the basis for a student visit to the Museum. The CHS also run an outreach program - the History on the Move School Trailer program, which brings local history into the school.

Frontier Wars Map Launched
After years of painstaking research, an online map marking the massacres of Aboriginal clans across Australia's colonial frontier has launched.

Photo: Professor Lyndall Ryan with the map of Colonial Frontier Massacres in Eastern Australia 1788-1872 (University of Newcastle)
More than 150 sites have been recorded along the east coast, where violent attacks on Aboriginal people took place for decades after the First Fleet arrived.

Historian and conjoint Professor at the University of Newcastle Lyndall Ryan believes it will be one of the most comprehensive maps of the Frontier Wars ever produced.

'I think this project wanted to provide people with the evidence and finding the evidence has taken a long time,' Professor Ryan said. 'We'd like to hope that this is a preliminary map and more and more sites will be added over time.'

Professor Ryan said finding sources to corroborate oral history of the massacres was difficult, because the killings were "designed not to be discovered".

Sites in Tasmania, Victoria and most sites in New South Wales and Queensland have been recorded, but Professor Ryan said much more work needed to done in other states. 'As we move further west, I think we'll find that map is going to have a lot of dots on it,' she said.

Each site has been recorded alongside multiple accounts of the battles, with sources from newspaper reports, settler diaries and letters, and court records.

Professor Ryan said Tasmania was the first site where major massacres occurred — the conflict there is commonly known as the Black War.

'They went for a period of about seven or eight years, and it terms of the Aboriginal population in Tasmania, certainly the numbers were devastating,' she said.

But as settlers moved north along the mainland, Professor Ryan said death counts rose dramatically.

'We've got a number of really major massacres where 60 or more people were killed and then we've got a very major event at Gippsland, the Warrigal Creek massacres, where over a period of about five days, about 150 people were killed,' she said. 

Evidence 'could help overcome uncertainty, scepticism'

Some Aboriginal communities asked the researchers not to pinpoint the exact location of where their ancestors were killed, so the map records an approximate site instead.

The dots are marked in yellow — after many communities told the researchers that red was a sacred colour which should not be used to mark deaths.

Each marking on the map includes a date, the number of people killed, the types of weapons used by settlers and, in many cases, the names of the perpetrators. 'If you can provide the evidence of the information, then it could help to overcome a lot of the uncertainty and scepticism,'Professor Ryan said. 'I think it's making us focus on just what happened.'

There are few monuments to the Frontier War across the Australian landscape, and Professor Ryan hopes that may change.

'I guess this could be the beginning,' she said.

'However, we still haven't reached the point where we'll stop desecrating these sites.We've got a long way to go to accept the Frontier War.'

The research team found many major massacres happened alongside rivers, but some battle sites are now under dams, reservoirs and weirs.

'That's where the majority of Aboriginal people were, that was where the good pastoral land was and that's where the settlers wanted to be,' Professor Ryan said.

'I think it would be possible along the Murray River to have some well-identified signs saying: 'This was a battle site'.'

The Cultural Role of Volunteers in Local Museums
Katanning Historical Museum run by volunteers of the Katanning Historical Society, WA

Article on Museums' Cultural Role by Carole Perry, Crowea 
The Chamber of Arts and Culture (Western Australia) (Opinion, 17/7) claims artists have become WA's chief storytellers, 'satisfying a thirst which gives a sense of wellbeing and happiness, increases tourism and jobs'. The hundreds of museums spread across WA do, too.

Every day their volunteers are telling thousands of stories to visitors and tourists which collecting, caring for and displaying items of State and national heritage. Museums are also places of expression and creativity reflecting what is special about where we all live.

Local museums receive no support to keep their doors open. Yet, for 50 years communities at their own expense have been sharing their town's heritage. Let's hope the conference of the Chamber of Arts and Culture and the WA Local Government Association* do not continue to ignore our museums spread across the State. Please find ways to fund them.

At the end of August, the Chamber of Arts and Culture WA is presenting, with the City of Perth, a one day conference that looks at the trends around the world in terms of new business models for arts and culture and cross sector collaboration to build stronger and more productive communities.

Melbourne Day Lecture at RHSV
The Making of ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ 1835-1890, the Making of Remembering Melbourne 2015-2016 

The annual Melbourne day lunch time lecture is presented by Emeritus Professor Richard Broome 

This lecture will trace the development of Melbourne from an Aboriginal place to the colonial hub, in succession, of a sheepwalk, a golden eld of wealth, and an urbane modern metropolis. It will focus in particular on the latter European phase, asking why and how did Melbourne grow so ‘marvellous’. This will to an extent explain the despair the city fell into during the 1890s. The second half of the lecture will explain how the RHSV’s book was initiated, created, devised, produced and sold out.

If ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ was the product of a particularly rampant individualism based very much on money-making through property, the creation of Remembering Melbourne was the outcome of a rampant communalism and the spirit of volunteering. If avarice created a city, altruism has recorded it.

When: Wed 30 August 2017, refreshments 12.30 pm, lecture 1-2 pm
Venue: 239 A’Beckett Street, Melbourne
Cost: Members free,  non-members $10
Speaker: Emeritus Professor Richard Broome FAHA FRHSV
