National Trust (NSW) and Energy Australia Heritage Awards, Category E. Conservation Management Plans, Highly Commended, 2010, awarded to Edward Higginbotham & Associates Pty Ltd, with Terry Kass and Susan Jackson Stepowski, for the Goulburn Mulwaree Archaeological Management Plan (AMP).
The award recognises the success of the project in identifying and assessing a large number of sites in an extensive study area of 3,232 square kilometres on a limited budget. The team used predictive models to efficiently pinpoint sites in both rural and urban settings. With a cut-off date of 1860, the study concentrated on archaeological sites in Goulburn, Bungonia and Marulan, together with convict built roads and the farming landscape.
