Creators or Destroyers : The burning questions of human impact in ancient Aboriginal Australia Other events...
The Australian Academy of the Humanities Annual Lecture 2013, delivered by Professor Peter Hiscock FAHA, the Tom Austen Brown Professor of Australian Archaeology, The University of Sydney

Did Aboriginal people create an Eden-like estate or did they destroy the delicately balanced natural ecosystem they found in Australia? This talk critiques some of the latest theories and discoveries to reveal the intellectual biases and analytical constraints that underpin these debates. The magnitude of change that we can recognise in Aboriginal Australia prior to the arrival of Europeans challenges static and idealist stories of Australia’s human past.

The Academy gratefully acknowledges the support of the University of Western Australia.
