Book Review: Shared landscapes: archaeologies of attachment and the pastoral industry in New South Wales

McGrath, Ann


Historians can often gain a sense of intimacy about a place that they have never visited. The archivally-recorded places of one cattle station in North Queensland that I studied were rich in evocative names such as Monkey Flat, but not in exact locations. I knew the details of so many scandals and subversions in Aboriginal-white relations that had taken place there on that country. But where exactly did they happen? I decided to go there and to take in the landscape and its history.
