AUSTRALIAN INDIGENOUS ARCHAEOLOGY
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students journey through 65,000 years of Indigenous settlement in Australia. We will investigate a series of major themes, including the first settlement of different parts of the continent; interactions with and adaptations to varied and changing environments; technological choices; and patterns of economy and land use. A range of case studies will be explored to evaluate archaeological and ethnohistorical information and the way it has been used to provide insights into past ways of life in Australia.
