Nadia Bajzelj

Bachelor of Archaeology (Honours), La Trobe University

In 2014 Nadia completed her Bachelor of Archaeology degree, with Honours, from La Trobe University and was a recipient of The La Trobe Award. Her thesis, entitled “Baths to Basilica…” was a study tracking the cultural, architectural, religious and use changes of the Baths of Diocletian in Rome, from its construction to modern day use. Her reasons for becoming an archaeologist were to study and work on a wide range of sites, with diverse groups of people working towards the same goal: to enrich our knowledge of the past.

Since completing her degree, she has undertaken work on a wide range of both Indigenous and Historical sites around Victoria; from busy inner-city developments to isolated rural surveys. She has experience project managing Aboriginal archaeological fieldwork including both survey and excavation, as well as research and report writing.

She trained with Christine Williamson in historic artefact management, cataloguing and analysis for over a year and has been the Historic Artefact Specialist for Dr Vincent Clark and Associates since 2018.
