Australia is the driest inhabited continent – and our distinctive drylands make up the largest of the continent’s biomes. The Archaeology of Australia’s Deserts reviews and synthesizes the deep history of Australia’s deserts, charting the development of distinctive Aboriginal societies over 30 millennia. Mike Smith’s book takes stock of thirty years of lively research in desert archaeology.
