Contrary to what you may think, local Aboriginal people did not lose their culture and die out within decades of Governor Phillip's arrival in Sydney in 1788.

HIDDEN in PLAIN VIEW shows that Aboriginal people did not disappear.

This original and important book tells this powerful story through individuals, and brings a poorly understood period of Sydney's shared history back into view.

The Sydney Wars: Conflict in the early colony 1788 – 1817

This provocative book is the first detailed account of the warfare that occurred across the Sydney region from the arrival of a British expedition in 1788 to the last recorded conflict in the area in 1817.
