It lies opposite the south-eastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula. Since ancient times, until the mid 19th century, Kythera had been a crossroads of merchants, sailors, and conquerors. As such, it has had a long and varied history and has been influenced by many civilisations and cultures. This is reflected in its architecture (a blend of traditional, Aegean and Venetian elements), as well as the traditions and customs, influenced by centuries of coexistence of the Greek, Venetian, Ottoman and British civilisations as well as its numerous visitors. .Archaeology [To order this item without using the shopping cart please quote ID #276032], AU$140.00

Cooper, Jane [Compiler] Land of the Sleeping Gods Untold History and Mythology of the Tasmanian Aborigines. The Writings and Drawings of William Jackson Cotton 1st Edition. Wellington Bridge Press. Hobart. 2013. Softcover .240 pages .Small Quarto Size [approx 17.5cm x 24cm]. MINT - a NEW copy. Black & white illustrations. .The life of the Tasmanian Aborigines was smashed by white settlement before it could even be properly described, and much of their story has been considered lost to history.. Now comes an extraordinary treasury of new evidence, handed down through five generations of a Tasmanian East Coast family. From the time the Cotton archive came into being in the early 19th century, its Quaker compilers felt bound to keep most of it hidden - so the fascinating and often startling material in this book adds vastly to the sparse public record. What were the Aborigines' religion, their mythology, their beliefs? Who were their heroes? How did they fight wars? What games did they play? Why did they not eat fish? And did any of them survive on Tasmania's mainland after the British had done their best to carry them off? These questions and many more are illuminated in this intriguing and moving work. At the same time, the manner of its transmission poses further riddles. Painstakingly collated, edited and annotated over some 30 years, with a special essay by historian Henry Reynolds, Land of the Sleeping Gods is a must for anyone interested in the poignant, elusive story of Tasmania's first people. .Aborigines [To order this item without using the shopping cart please quote ID #274791], AU$52.50

Conceived as a 'province' fully formed, it was the only colony to be founded by an Act of the British parliament. The ideals present at its founding in 1836 included enlightened aspirations towards the Aboriginal inhabitants.

Adelaide, the colony's capital, exercised an influence over the colony unmatched by the capitals in other Australian colonies. This book seeks to explore the South Australian experience to the time of Australia's federation in 1901. .South Australia [To order this item without using the shopping cart please quote ID #276099], AU$85.00
