Abstract

This thesis explores rural non-Aboriginal people's affective and emotional responses to Aboriginal heritage; waterholes, stone artefacts and human burials. drawing on theoretical research in new materialism, affect and emotion, the study explores the various - often unsettling - ways that rural non-Aboriginal people come to terms with Aboriginal heritage in their domains. In some cases, intimate or uneasy attachments may form to such places/objects; attachments which are neither Indigenous nor archaeologically derived, but are often influenced by both. The research highlights how ultimately, non-Aboriginal attachments to Aboriginal heritage are not only personal and individual, but also highly political and cultural.
