Thomas Mill Dig findings

Come along to a public talk and see what was discovered at an archaeological dig in Mernda conducted during May.

Heritage Victoria archaeologist Jeremy Smith will present the findings from the excavation at the former Moses Thomas flour mill site, which operated from 1855 to 1863 on the Plenty River, just south of Bridge Inn Road in Mernda.

View historical artefacts that have been buried for over 150 years, archival material and photos, and meet the descendants of early pioneer, Moses Thomas.

Aboriginal material recovered on site also indicates that the Plenty River Gorge has been an important corridor and focus of settlement since the earliest times.

No RSVP is necessary for this event.
