Bruising The Red Earth - Ochre mining and ritual in Aboriginal Tasmania
 
(0 reviews)  

A series of essays that explore the mining of red ochre by Aboriginal Tasmanians from several angles, including:
- the primacy of the colour red in human perception;
- the archaeological record that attests to its use;
- the geology and vegetation of the Gog Range that contains the Toolumbunner ochre mine; and
- a detailed technical account of the excavation of Toolumbunner and the stones used to pulverise the red mineral.
