Congratulations to all recipients of the NSW Premier’s History Awards and in particular RAHS Councillor Dr Peter Hobbins on being awarded the NSW Community and Regional History Prize for ‘Stories from the Sandstone: Quarantine Inscriptions from Australia’s Immigrant Past’ which he co-authored with Ursula K. Frederick and Anne Clarke.

The book is the culmination of a three-year project run by the Department of Archaeology at the University of Sydney, which integrated the work of archaeologists, historians and heritage practitioners to investigate these engravings left behind at the Quarantine Station.
