Deepen the Conversation: A Burning Landscape

Historian Bill Gammage explodes the myth that pre-European settlement Australia was an untamed wilderness, revealing the complex, country-wide systems of land management used by Aboriginal people.

Inspired by early European accounts that some of the Australian environment resembled well-groomed English estates, Bill has written the book The Biggest Estate on Earth, exploring the ways Aboriginal people lived with the landscape to ensure a rich and fertile environment.

Join Kate Evans (ABC Radio National) in conversation with Bill Gammage as they discuss how Aboriginal people understood and shaped this historical landscape, and the impacts of this knowledge on current land management strategies.

Find books related to this event in The Library Shop. The talk will be live streamed.
