Known historical archaeological sites exist throughout Victoria and may contain significant information about the past. Sites can include buried 19th century foundations and artefact scatters . Places of potential historical significance can also be under Heritage Overlays (HO).
All historical sites and places are protected under the provisions of the Heritage Act 2017. If disturbance is proposed a process of archaeological investigation may be required in which case consent will be required from Heritage Victoria.
TerraCulture has completed a large range of non-indigenous archaeological assessments within Victoria delivering heritage management advice in compliance with territory and state legislation.
In the past year we have undertaken a number of major historical archaeological investigations in the CBD that have placed us in the forefront of historical archaeology in Melbourne.
