History with boots on

This week Tamson Pietsch and Anna Clark spoke with the President of the History Council of New South Wales, Tanya Evans to find out how #historyweek17 went.

They also chatted with the winner of the NSW Premier’s History awards, Peter Hobbins about his award-winning book Stories from the Sandstone, that saw historians and archaeologists team up to unlock the secrets of over 1600 engravings carved into the rocks and walls around the Manly Quarantine Station during its 150-year history.


Stories from the Sandstone: Quarantine Inscriptions from Australia’s Immigrant Past by Peter Hobbins, Ursula K Frederick and Anne Clarke can be purchased at the NSW State Library and online
