Published to accompany major exhibitions at the British Museum and the National Museum of Australia in 2015, Indigenous Australia: Enduring Civilisation uses objects from the extraordinary collection of the British Museum to celebrate the unique and ongoing relationship that Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders have to place and country.
This groundbreaking new publication also explores the profound impact and legacy of colonialism, the nature of collecting and the changing meaning of objects now in the collection of the British Museum.
This richly illustrated book challenges pre-existing ideas about Indigenous Australian culture and highlights its beauty, diversity and vitality.
