Summary
Ancient Australia Unearthed draws on archaeology to map 50,000 years of Australia's ancient past. It traces the evidence that is etched into the skin of this country to unearth the rich and complex history of this unique island continent. This text collates and presents existing research and available resources in a way that will assist teachers and students with the Australian Curriculum depth study unit "Ancient Australia". It may also have a broader appeal for anyone wishing to gain an understanding of Australian Indigenous archaeology
