Our March meeting will focus on the recent archaeological digs at Kings Square and what was found.
Sometimes archaeological work poses more questions than answers. It can also challenge information found in the written record creating interesting debates between archaeologists and historians. The historical record is always the winner. To learn more about the process and the recent finds join us at our March meeting where Fiona Hook of Archae-Aus will explain the approach they took to the digs, the evidence they found and give us an analysis of those findings.

My name is Chris Carmody and I have just written and had published a book called “Yesterday’s Heroes” : Fremantle’s Footballers and Wharfies in the Golden Years. It is essentially about the effect that the East Fremantle and South Fremantle footballers, the wharfies and the pubs had on the social fabric of Fremantle. Some stories covered the years just before WW2 with most of them covering the first couple of decades straight after the war. Over 30 people were interviewed for the project including high-profile footballers from both teams, wharfies and Fremantle luminaries such as JJ Miller. Lots of interesting yarns which I thought will give people an insight into the way people led their lives during those time.
The book was launched at the South Fremantle Football Club social rooms ( now called the Fremantle Function Centre), inside Fremantle Oval at 5 30pm on Friday 9 March. Rick Hart, former president of the Fremantle Dockers launched it.
I have sent you some attachments with this email that will give you further details. You are invited to share them with other members of your organisation.
The book is published by Round House Press.
