Nicholas Hadnutt has been the Archaeology Curator for the Cultures and Histories Program at the Queensland Museum (QM) since 2015. He joined QM in 2008 as an Assistant Collection Manager after completing a Bachelor of Arts (Archaeology double major) and then an Honours degree with the University of Queensland. His broad museum experience includes exhibition development and delivery, large-scale gallery refurbishments, international exhibition installations and public programming.
Nicholas is interested in the changing role of museums and their collections since inception as well as 19th and 20th century material culture. With a research expertise in historical archaeology, he is currently investigating how QM’s historical archaeology collection has developed and ways to add value. Recently, Nicholas has joined fieldwork projects in central Queensland to excavate and analyse artefacts from a gold mining town, with a view to building the State collection.
