Previously we have learnt about why convicts were sent to Australia, what life was like as a convict and the early contact between the British and the people who already inhabited Australia prior to invasion- the Indigenous people of Australia.
 
Now we are going to focus on Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania), particularly George Augustus Robinson and his role as "Chief Protector of the Aborigines".
 
Through examining the actions of George Augustus Robinson we will make connections to the society of today and specifically Indigenous rights.
