The past 50,000 years: an archaeological view

Peter Veth, Susan O'Connor

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    The ‘beginnings’ of Australian history are always difficult to determine. In addition to Indigenous systems of knowledge with their own epistemologies, understanding ancient Australia involves the disciplines of archaeology, anthropology and linguistics, as well as history. These disciplines developed out of earlier forms of knowledge whereby European explorers, settlers, naturalists, ethnologists, antiquarians and collectors sought to ascertain the Australian past.
