Summary

"The Archaeology of Aboriginal Australia seeks to convey a sense of the excitement and significance of the research undertaken during the 'decades of discovery'. The material presented here - specially commissioned essays and key published articles by new and established scholars - focuses on the themes and issues which continue to attract the most attention among archaeologists: the antiquity of the human settlement of Australia, patterns of colonisation, the significance of change in Aboriginal society in the late prehistoric period, the usefulness of reconstructions of past ecological systems in understanding the histories of Aboriginal societies, the value of rock art and stone tool technology in understanding the human history of Australia, and the archaeology of Aboriginal-European contact."--BOOK JACKET.
