    In May, a very special piece of pewter is coming to the Australian National Maritime Museum - the Hartog plate, on loan from Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, to mark 400 years since Dutch mariner Dirk Hartog made the first recorded European landing on the west coast of Australia in 1616.                                                                                                     

    As a testimony of his visit, Hartog left behind an inscribed pewter plate in Shark Bay, Western Australia, which is recognised as the oldest European artefact found on Australian soil.                        

    Tamar Davidowitz, metals conservator at the Rijksmuseum, has spent about 1000 hours treating the Hartog plate in preparation for its journey to Australia. 

    Join Tamar for a fascinating discussion about the history, conservation and transportation of the Hartog plate, as well as her visit to Cape Inscription on Dirk Hartog Island as part of the Hartog 400th anniversary commemorations.
