Dark emu: Aboriginal Australia and the birth of agriculture. Bruce Pascoe. 2019.

Regular price $7.00

Bruce Pascoe puts forward a compelling argument for a reconsideration of the Hunter-gatherer label for pre-colonial aboriginal Australians. The evidence insists that Aboriginal people right across the continent were using domesticated plants, sowing, harvesting, irrigating and storing -  behaviours inconsistent with the Hunter-gatherer tag.
