Deep time dreaming

Listen to CABAH Associate Investigator Billy Griffiths talking to the ABC’s Richard Fidler about the history of archeology in Australia.



Billy’s award-winning book, Deep Time Dreaming, ┬áinvestigates a twin revolution: the reassertion of Aboriginal identity in the second half of the twentieth century, and the uncovering of the traces of ancient Australia.

It explores what it means to live in a place of great antiquity, with its complex questions of ownership and belonging. It is about a slow shift in national consciousness: the deep time dreaming that has changed the way many of us relate to this continent and its enduring, dynamic human history.
