[Extract] "Prehistory of Australia" is the loosely-termed third edition of "A Prehistory of Australia" which originally appeared under Mulvaney's sole authorship in 1965 and in a revised form in 1975. The book joins a growing number of syntheses of pre-European Aboriginal history based largely on archaeological data, including three editions of Josephine Flood's popular "Archaeology of the Dreamtime", White and O'Connell's classic "A Prehistory of Australia, New Guinea and Sahul" and Harry Lourandos' recent "Continent of Hunter-Gatherers".
