Abstract

Shows that pastoral heritage is more than just 'woolsheds and homesteads', the showpieces of white, male settler colonial economies. Pastoral heritage is the product of the mutual histories of Aboriginal and settler Australians. It is a form of heritage that is both in, and a part of, the landscape. His 'archaeological' approach to the heritage of the pastoral industry involves both recording sites and excavating attachments to community heritage.
