Product Description

The Social Archaeology of Australian Indigenous Societies looks beyond the stereotype of Aboriginal peoples as ‘hunter-gatherers’ and charts new and challenging agendas for Australian Aboriginal archaeology.

Building on the foundational work of Harry Lourandos, the book critically examines and challenges traditional approaches which have presented Indigenous Australian pasts as static and tethered to ecological rationalism.

The book reveals the ancient past of Aboriginal Australians to be one of long-term changes in social relationships and traditions, as well as the active management and manipulation of the environment. It encourages a deeper appreciation of the ways Aboriginal peoples have engaged with, and constructed their worlds.
