Bill Gammage on the Biggest Estate on Earth: How Aborigines Made Australia
Bill Gammage AM is an Australian academic historian. In this Lunchbox/Soapbox presentation, he discusses the mistaken belief that Aboriginal Australians were passive occupiers of the land before European settlement, noting their holistic sense of connection with their environment, and careful use of fire to rejuvenate landscapes and manipulate the movement of fauna.
