Social Archaeology of Australian Indigenous Societies by Bruno David
Book DescriptionThis book presents original and provocative views on the complex and dynamic social lives of Indigenous Australians from an historical perspective. Building on the foundational work of Harry Lourandos, the book critically examines and challenges traditional approaches which have presented Indigenous Australian pasts as static and tethered to ecological rationalism.The book reveals the ancient past of Aboriginal Australians to be one of long-term changes in social relationships and traditions, as well as the active management and manipulation of the environment. It encourages a deeper appreciation of the ways Aboriginal peoples have engaged with, and constructed their worlds. It solicits a deeper understanding of the contemporary political and social context of research and the insidious impacts of colonialist philosophies. In short, it concerns people: both past and present. Ultimately, The Social Archaeology of Australian Indigenous Societies looks beyond the stereotype of Aboriginal peoples as hunter-gatherers and charts new and challenging agendas for Australian Aboriginal archaeology.

Cave Art, Paperback (February 2017)
Deep underground, hidden from view, some of humanity's earliest artistic endeavours have lain buried for thousands of years. Often undisturbed for tens of thousands of years, these were among the first visual symbols that humans shared with each other. However, as the author reveals, we have ways of unlocking their secrets.
