Experience

Daniel Jones has been working in cultural heritage for over 12 years. Whilst working as a project coordinator for Jagera Daran, Daniel completed a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Archaeology and Palaeoanthropology with Honours in Archaeology. Daniel has conducted detailed work with the Jagera People and other Aboriginal communities on many projects, including major highway upgrades, residential developments, mine development, pipelines and rail infrastructure projects. He has managed large mitigation programs for a variety of projects with a focus on traditional owner involvement and excavation for subsurface Aboriginal heritage.

Daniel’s work with Jagera Daran helped Traditional Owners further develop mitigation strategies to record their heritage which included instigating detailed education and training in stone artefact identification, curation and recording process amongst Aboriginal communities.

Daniel has a major interest in stone artefact identification and relationships between stone artefact assemblages within a regional context. This focus has led to his thesis research of backed artefacts and potential regional variation amongst language groups and wider Aboriginal countries.
