A: My name is Chiara Singh and Iโ€™m currently working as a Project Assistant in the Department of Human Sciences. The department works towards the promotion and conservation of a large anthropology and archaeology collection by documenting and researching as much as we can about every object and artefact we have.

A: I have worked on a few projects since I joined the Museum but two projects stand out for me, which I am currently working on in conjunction with Dr Justine Wintjes under the African Digital Humanities programme: the Five Hundred Year Archive and Metsemegologolo. The Five Hundred Year Archive convenes digital resources online for the study of pre-colonial history in the KZN region. Metsemegologolo (meaning โ€˜ancient townsโ€™ in Setswana) is a linked project that seeks to promote understanding of precolonial African urbanisms. Both projects are experimental and their websites are in development, so watch this space!
Itโ€™s very exciting for us because we get to see some of the earliest objects in our collection displayed online where they can be engaged with by a wider audience. Dr Wintjes and myself have worked towards building these online curations for academics and the general public to explore and interact with. These two projects have been the biggest highlight for me in terms of personal, departmental, and museum achievements. I have gained a lot of experience and we are learning so much as a department about digitization and online databases and how that will help the KwaZulu-Natal Museum in the near future.

A: The best advice that I can give to any young woman who would like to become an archaeologist or anthropologist is to follow your passion and believe in yourself and your capabilities because that will always show in the work that you do. There will always be people who believe in you in this line of work and the opportunities might take a while to arrive but once they do, there will be nothing to stop you from persevering.
