AUTHOR TALK Dr Stephen Gapps

Was the Bathurst War of 1824 a one-off event or part of ongoing warfare that spread from Sydney?

Meet award-winning historian Dr Stephen Gapps as he discusses his book, The Sydney Wars, 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.
