RAHS Day Lecture – Australia’s Maritime Frontier
July 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
In an address given on 8 October 2018, Dr Craig Wilcox stated that there is a:
‘blind spot in our vision of Australian frontier conflict … Conflict caused by expansion inland and coastal lodgements around the continent has, in many ways, been incorporated into Australian military history. However, conflict caused by expansion across the seas remains understudied.’
This talk will consider what the course of Australian maritime frontier conflict might look like.
