Rodney Harrison is a research fellow in the Centre for Cross Cultural Research at the Australian National University, Canberra. This book was largely prepared while he was employed in the cultural heritage research unit in the Department of Environment and Conservation (NSW) in Sydney. His research has focused on 'contact' archaeology, the historical archaeology of the pastoral industry in Australia, collaborative and community-based archaeologies, and the role of material culture in negotiating cross-cultural encounters. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Western Australia. Christine Williamson holds a Ph.D. in archaeology from La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. Her research has focused on the nature of European and Aboriginal interactions on the colonial frontier in northwest Tasmania, and the role of long-term historical trajectories in structuring post-contact change. Her research interests include historical archaeology, Aboriginal/European contact, and the writing of Aboriginal history. She is currently self-employed as a heritage consultant in Melbourne.
