I was very pleased to be given the opportunity by the AACAI to review this book as I have already had many occasions to refer to it for contextual material in my day-to-day work as a consultant in Sydney. In this volume Attenbrow has successfully produced a book that has the capacity to engage the public as well as provide an excellent regional overview for students and professionals engaged in archaeological and heritage work in the Sydney area. Interstate visitors to our household have been quick to borrow it to take advantage of the places to visit in the back of the book. These places consist of easily accessible Aboriginal sites around the Sydney area that are open to the public and which for the most part have at least some on-site interpretation.
