Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students concentrate on the archaeological evidence of thousands of years of Indigenous developments in south-eastern Australia, with particular reference to Victoria. The archaeological evidence from different regions is set within the environmental context, while historical and ethnographic evidence provide additional sources for understanding Aboriginal society and economy at the time of European settlement. Conflicting explanations for past changes that stress environmental, social, technological or demographic factors are examined in the light of available archaeological evidence. The role of Indigenous communities in shaping archaeological and heritage management practice is an increasingly significant component of the subject
