Roaming in Western New South Wales

After an unexpected and early return to Australia some months ago, we are now settled in a new place and gainfully employed. I have been excavating for several months in the Hunter Valley but took some time out on the weekend to help some friends do some preliminary fieldwork for a potential research project. On the road we came across a monument (Goobothery Hill). Some historical photos from the National Library of Australia’s digital collection can be seen here. Nothing remains of the original burial mound. Also a point of curiousity is Evan’s depiction of the grave mound and carved trees with a hill in the immediate background, also not observed.
