Archaeology from Australia extensively surveys archaeological research in Australia or by Australians working in Oceania, Asia, Africa and the Mediterranean.
Twenty-three essays are offered by practitioners who are keen to communicate the interest and importance of their work and present a comprehensive review of archaeological practice, method and theory. This book demonstrates how Australian archaeologists provide valuable understandings of Indigenous Australia, the history of settler Australia and the human story outside our continent.
Endorsed by the leading archaeology societies in Australia the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology, the Australian Archaeological Association, and the Australian Association of Consulting Archaeologists, Archaeology from Australia will serve as a source book for practitioners, a reader for university students and an eye-opening work for the interested general reader.
Editor Tim Murray has been Professor of Archaeology at La Trobe University since 1995 and between 2001 and 2003 was Foundation Head of its School of Historical and European Studies.
