Australian Aboriginal Culture and History

Australian Aboriginal Culture and History | contact history | Scoop.it

Australian Aborigines existed in almost total isolation for at least 60,000 years. They had no written history so only fragments of Dreamtime stories, cave paintings and etchings ramain to record their remarkable past. Only in the last few decades has a systemic investigation revealed the rich and complex culture that they possessed
