Cross River Rail’s After Dark Online is a monthly education and discovery series based around real-life learnings relating to Queensland’s largest infrastructure project.

With a new theme and topic each month, the After Dark Online education series will feature Subject Matter Experts talking about the topic and how it aligns with the project.

This May we will be celebrating National Archaeology Week by covering the topic of Archaeology and hearing from two guest speakers, Everick Foundation’s Principal Research Archaeologist, Dr Serena Love and University of Queensland’s School of Social Science PhD Candidate, Marc Cheesman. They will be discussing the role archaeology plays in Australia and what we are uncovering about our past, as well as its relevance to big projects like Cross River Rail.

Perfect for all ages, this education series explores Cross River Rail’s archaeology program and its collection of historical finds as part of station excavation, and how this plays a critical role in the education program and learning more about Brisbane’s history.
