Abstract (in English)

The two hundredth anniversary of British colonial settlement in Australia will be celebrated in 1988 and an appropriate focus of attention is the remains of Australia's first permanent building , the residence and offices of the colonial governors. This was the nucleus of settlement and the site, miraculously undeveloped for the past 150 years has recently been rediscovered in the heart of downtown Sydney.
