Peopled Landscapes: Archaeological and Biogeographic Approaches to Landscapes (Terra Australis) (Volume 34) by Simon G. Haberle

This impressive collection celebrates the work of Peter Kershaw, a key figure in the field of Australian palaeoenvironmental reconstruction. Over almost half a century his research helped reconceptualize ecology in Australia, creating a detailed understanding of environmental change in the Late Pleistocene and Holocene. Within a biogeographic framework one of his exceptional contributions was to explore the ways that Aboriginal people may have modified the landscape through the effects of anthropogenic burning. These ideas have had significant impacts on thinking within the fields of geomorphology, biogeography, archaeology, anthropology and history. Papers presented here continue to explore the dynamism of landscape change in Australia and the contribution of humans to those transformations. The volume is structured in two sections.

I enjoyed reading this volume. It is rare to see such a comprehensive report on hard data published these days, especially one so insightfully contextualised by the editors’ introductory and concluding chapters. These scholars and the others involved in the work really know their stuff, and it shows. The editors connect the preoccupations of Pacific archaeologists with those of their colleagues working in other island regions and on “big questions” of colonisation, migration, interaction and patterns and processes of cultural change in hitherto-uninhabited environments.

On her last voyage of the season, Stella’s Captain faces off against tight corridors and the notorious Drake Passage – the roughest, most unpredictable seas on the planet. Meanwhile, the ship’s expedition leader scrambles to guide his guests ashore safely through ice-filled waters, seeking out spectacular glaciers, elusive seals and a landing on Cape Horn, known for centuries as the End of the World.
