Abstract

This paper examines the nature of archaeological evidence
relating to frontier conflict/violence in the Australian context. Because of the unique nature of Aboriginal/European
frontier encounters, it is argued that a focus on locating
archaeological evidence for massacres is problematic. It is
suggested that rather than focus on frontier conflict in terms of massacre sites, archaeologists employ a broader social landscape archaeological approach, thus allowing a more holistic contextualisation of Aboriginal/European frontier interactions.
