Australian historical archaeology: Retrospects and prospects

22nd November 2013

Alistair Paterson and Andrew Wilson

Introduction*

The primary aim of this paper is to provide a review of historical archaeology in Australia. We feel that the continuing debate on the nature and course of the subject could benefit from such a review. Our goal is to provide by demonstration a de facto profile of the discipline and suggest some potential future directions. We do not give a description of the development of Australian historical archaeology but attempt to demonstrate what the discipline has been at least in terms of publications and theses.

*Note that an abstract was not included with this paper, and so the introductory paragraph has been included here instead of the abstract.
