AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Settlement traces the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing from the variety of shelters used pre-invasion to the extraordinary cottages built by Victorian missionaries, through to the dreaded children's dormitory to the compound and its horrors of disease and overcrowding.'

'Modern themes such as gendered housing, family-friendly prisons, self-built houses, government programs, and advanced designs for health and durability are also explored.' (Source: Publisher's website)
