Heritage of NSW

Shared Landscapes: archaeologies of attachment and the pastoral industry in NSW

"... if the blackfellas weren't there, they wouldn't have been able to do it ... they took some following when they took after cattle. Where the cattle went, they went."

- Bruce Lockwood, Armidale, 21 March 2001


Tracking the history of these land-use changes, 'Shared Landscapes', published by University of New South Wales Press, presents new ways of understanding historic heritage in settler societies. It features cross-disciplinary case studies that examine the heritage of the pastoral industry in Oxley Wild Rivers National Park and Culgoa National Park.

Extensively illustrated with over 200 plates, maps and line drawings, this book represents a major intervention in the practice of cultural heritage management and historical archaeology in Australia. It also engages with broader issues of history, race, place and identity.
