Yesterday, 3 December 2017, was the 163rd anniversary of the Eureka stockade skirmish, which marked the end of a brief uprising of goldminers at Ballarat, Victoria. At least 20 miners and six soldiers were killed.
The Honest History site has a number of resources on Eureka. See last year’s note, some papers from a conference in 2014, our note from 2015 (lots of links), a 2014 speech from Humphrey McQueen, or use our Search engine.
