Sarah Janson


Sarah has experience working in both historical heritage and Aboriginal archaeology. Specialising in Australian historical archaeology at the University of Sydney (2011- 2015), Sarah completed a research thesis on expressions of mortuary commemorations at Sydney’s former North Head Quarantine Station cemetery. As part of this, Sarah developed key skills in research design and using statistical and database software packages for archaeological analysis. She has presented this research at both local and international forums.

As a Research Assistant with the ‘Stories from the Sandstone: The Archaeology and History of Quarantine’ Australian Research Council funded Linkage project, Sarah contributed skills in research and field work to conduct a comprehensive survey of historical cemetery remains as well as assisting in GIS mapping of the site. Sarah has also worked as field assistant on historical excavations in Sydney and academic Aboriginal archaeological projects.
Additionally, Sarah has over four years’ experience in the museum sector, developing skills in collections management, cataloguing and artefact handling and care. She is currently undertaking further post-graduate study in Cultural Heritage.
