Abstract (in English)

This paper explores the relationship between social significance, or the value of places to the community, and those places which evidence the shared heritage of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The subject of this paper is therefore not ‘archaeology’ but heritage. Heritage is the framework within which most Australians perceive archaeology and the context within which archaeological sites are managed and interpreted (Sullivan 1996; Byrne 1993, 1998; ATSIC and Office of National Tourism 1997). The aims of the paper are twofold, firstly I intend to speculate on the evidence for cross cultural exchange between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian and, in particular, the cultural transfer from Aboriginal culture to settler culture. Secondly I aim to pique the reader’s interest in ‘community values’ or social significance in the hope that more archaeologists might explore the relationship between communities and archaeological sites.
