First Nation Warriors: Sydney Wars 1788 – 1817

By October 17, 2019No Comments

Meet award-winning historian Dr Stephen Gapps as he discusses his book The Sydney Wars: Conflict in the early colony 1788 – 1817, which reveals British soldiers and First Nation warriors both used military-style tactics in a ‘constant war’ during early settlement.

He challenges past beliefs that such clashes were sporadic and unplanned and will share new research about conflicts west of the Blue Mountains.

Meet Dr Gapps at Orange City Library on Thursday 24 October at 5.30pm. Please RSVP via or call the Library on 6393 8132.
