Only in the last few decades has a systemic investigation revealed the rich and complex culture that they possessed

While this is not a curation site, it contains some examples of history units addressing Australian Curriculum content descriptors. If you click on the resources section for each unit, the lists of resources could be useful in helping teacher librarians locate relevant sources when curating on any of these history topics.
