Abstract

An up-dated list of surviving pre-circa 1820 Aboriginal ethnographic material from, or claimed to be from, the Botany Bay-Port Jackson area is followed by discussion of a number of late 18th/early 19th century depictions of Aborigines, some hitherto unpublished. This material is examined in the light of a number of recent surveys of the art, archaeology and ethnography of the Sydney district at the beginning of the period of European settlement.
