The excavation would also be searching for evidence of Indigenous activity on the site.

"I have been told by traditional custodians that this was a big meeting place for Indigenous people in the area," he said. "This is evident through archaeology with a good number of stone flakes and cores turning up in the sieve".

Dr Wright said there was also a chance of finding illusive evidence for contact between Europeans and local Indigenous people.

"Strangely in the ACT and surrounding regions it's really hard to find any signs of that type of contact but we're keeping our fingers crossed," he said.
