Coastal Connections in the Colonial Northwest

Thursday 21 September 2017 01:00PM to 02:00PM
Great Southern Room

Professor Alistair Paterson will present new research on the history of the Northwest and explore what the colonial coastal frontier was like for Aboriginal communities facing the extreme challenges of European settlement. Bringing together archival sources, collected objects held in museums with historical archaeological fieldwork, a new regional analysis will be revealed producing a new history of the Northwest, 100 years since J.S. Battye’s History of the Northwest.
