ABC Radio National: Indigenous history and the history of fire

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

A multi-disciplinary approach to Indigenous history

Australian history stretches back 60,000 years but our written history is only 250 years old. Historians are restoring indigenous people to their proper place in the story of Australia but there’s much we still don’t know. An indigenous historian is leading an international team to discover how indigenous communities responded to other seafarers who arrived on our shores long before the British.
