Abstract

The Tower Mill, Brisbane's oldest extant building, was excavated by the University of Queensland to determine for the Brisbane City Council the heritage potential of surrounding subsurface deposits. Following the employment of GPR, excavation revealed interesting stratifications, features and artefacts. Analysis permits an explanation for these deposits which augment an already fascinating history of the site's use over the past 170 years or so.
