Museum in a box - Cultural History

James King © Australian Museum

The Cultural History box examines the history of Indigneous Australians in New South Wales. It will help students understand that Australia has a history that spans thousands of years and to recognise that the view of history depends on who is telling it. Students will use a range of tools, including archaeology, oral histories, written histories and art, to find out about the past and experience Australian history from Indigneous Australians perspectives.
