The White Hart Inn: Creating connections

This online exhibition, curated by Anna Hohne and Isabella Balic for the Australian History Museum at Macquarie University, celebrates National Archaeology Week. The aim of this exhibition is to show the interrelation between cultural heritage and archaeology in Australia, by examining the establishment, operation, decline, and rediscovery of the White Hart Inn.

A major theme of the exhibition is connection; the way that inns were vital to supporting communities and travellers as the colony expanded, how it was rediscovered as a result of the Sydney Metro project which seeks to connect disparate areas of Sydney in the present, and how the objects can connect us with the lives of individuals who lived in the area over a hundred years ago. This online exhibition incorporates photographs, photographic scans, 3D scanned objects and interviews to tell a story spanning three centuries.
