Writing Heritage — The Depiction of Indigenous Heritage in European-Australian Writings

By Michael Davis

From the late nineteenth century and into the twentieth century, European-Australians were actively recording, documenting and collecting Aboriginal heritage. This book examines how they did this, exploring perceptions of authenticity and innovation in Aboriginal heritage and approaches to ethnographic collecting.
