Inaugural Coral Thomas Fellowship Lecture

Thursday 19 October 2017 - 5:30pm to 7pm

In the early 1830s, surveyor John Helder Wedge collected early south-eastern Aboriginal wooden artefacts from Tasmania and Victoria, now housed in the Saffron Walden Museum in Essex. It has been suggested that Wedge sought the artefacts out of a rare ‘humanitarian’ interest in the Indigenous people. Rebe Taylor, Coral Thomas Fellow, will deliver the inaugural lecture on her recent findings.
