Mulvaney, John & Johan Kamminga

Prehistory of Australia, Allen & Unwin, St Leonards, NSW, revised edition, 1999; first published Thames and Hudson 1969 as The Prehistory of Australia; other editions

Mulvaney has been Australia’s most distinguished prehistorian. ‘The obvious starting point for any … analysis of Mulvaney’s work is the opening sentence of his 1969 archaeological overview, The Prehistory of Australia: “The discoverers, explorers and colonists of … Australia, were its Aborigines.”‘ (Bain Attwood, quoted here)
