The area we now know as Stonnington was part of the Traditional Lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong peoples of the East Kulin Nations, which meant they were connected to clans as far away as the Murray River. Gary Presland will detail the nature of these connections in this engaging talk, based on his book First People: The eastern Kulin of Melbourne, Port Philip & Central Victoria.
Dr Gary Presland is an archaeologist, historian and writer, with particular interests in both pre-contact First Nations history and natural history, in the Melbourne area. He is the author of several published books on these subjects, including First people: the Eastern Kulin of Melbourne, Port Phillip and central Victoria and The place for a village: how nature has shaped the city of Melbourne.
Gary is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society of Victoria, an Honorary Fellow in the School of Geography at University of Melbourne, and an Honorary Associate of Museum Victoria.
Bookings are required for every attendee.
