Connections Across the Coral Sea

Connections Across the Coral Sea

In stock

Imagine a place unbounded by western borders, where thoughts, ideas and objects are shared among rich, seafaring cultures — a place of substantial exchange that has existed since time immemorial.

For thousands of years, the Coral Sea has been a place of significant cultural interaction between people from southern New Guinea, north Queensland and the Torres Strait Islands. While trade and relationships continue across this region today, archaeologists working in partnership with First Nations communities have highlighted ancient two-way cultural movement and connection over an extraordinarily large area.

Connections Across the Coral Sea draws together the threads of archaeological and anthropological research, the dynamism of artefacts and objects, and the knowledge and stories of First Nations people to tell the rich history of this fascinating and incredibly beautiful part of the world.

Published by Queensland Museum Network in partnership with the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH) for the exhibition Connections Across the Coral Sea (December 2021–October 2022).
