G'day from Down Under I am a Cultural Heritage Coordinator for the area in Australia within the state of Victoria.

I am responsible for 27,000 sq kms. Sites such as middens, burials, scar trees & local cultural sites (both mens & womens places). In the process we get look for stone artefacts.

I have only been in job for a week but love it. If you guys have any questions please ask.

And no I have no qualifications related to archaeology or pre-history, I am Aboriginal man.

I get to play with GIS & GPS systems to log & record all sites. If you like not that here's much there but here's a link for you

Do you take any pictures of the sites? I'm interested in some of the rock art I've seen from Australia, especially spiral and helix shaped designs I've seen. Also, do you know of any good websites where I can find info on Indigenous Australian spirituality and mythology? Thanks.

I appreciate the leads. I would really like to see what you come up with, though you don't have to bother if you're busy. 27k square kilometers is a big responsibility. Sounds like you have a sweet job, getting to be outside a lot and getting paid. Be well.
