Hunter Living Histories

Filed under Bloggist, Heritage & Historical ~ by Editor on  30 Dec 2018

The University of Newcastle’s Coal River Working Party is a historical research group formed in 2003 by then Dr (now Professor) Erik Eklund in the Dept of History. Mr. Doug Lithgow, President of the Parks and Playgrounds Movement Inc. approached the University with the proposal to form a team of academic researchers dedicated to the investigation of the early history of Newcastle, with a view to safeguarding the heritage fabric of Newcastle’s birthplace, the Coal River Heritage Precinct.

Since 2016 the work of the Coal River Working Party has become part of the Hunter (Living) Histories Initiative, to better reflect the University’s Cultural Collections collaborations across the Hunter Regional communities.
