Research in Darren Curnoe’s Lab focuses on understanding the key themes of people, place and time through the disciplinary lenses of archaeology, palaeoanthropology, palaeoecology, social anthropology and archaeological science.

While much of our research is aimed at reconstructing past people, cultures, sites and environments, we also work with Indigenous communities to document living knowledge about places, history and resources.

Our lab is based in the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Science (BEES) at the University of New South Wales Sydney and is also a member of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH).
