Preserving the Intangible: Our Ethical Approach to Ethnographic Anthropology

When documenting a heritage place, site or place of significance, our anthropologists' approach transcends mere artefact identification. By delving into the intangible values tied to the site, we uncover its profound cultural and spiritual significance. This comprehensive method allows us to position the site and its artefacts within a broader cultural landscape.

We consider it an honour to collaborate with Aboriginal Communities, documenting archaeological sites on their country and capturing the anthropological values they hold dear. Throughout our work, we uphold values of respect, empathy, and transparency in our interactions with our partners while providing local Aboriginal cultural heritage services.

Recognising the significance of our work, we strive to gather extensive information about the places we visit. We meticulously create highly accurate and valuable written records that depict the ongoing connection of Indigenous Australian people of the land, ensuring the written preservation of their continuous traditional relationship and knowledge.

At all times, we handle sensitive cultural information with the utmost respect and confidentiality, adhering closely to the guidance provided by Traditional Owner representatives. Through collaborative efforts, we aim to protect and safeguard this invaluable knowledge for the benefit of future generations.
