Abstract

The American-Australian Scientific Expedition to Arnhem Land, 1948
In February 1948, 12 Australians and 5 Americans, men and women, set out on a 9 month expedition across Arnhem Land in the north of Australia. Led by Australian anthropologist and photographer Charles Mountford (1890-1976), the expedition’s aim was to chronicle the indigenous peoples and their environment. An enormous amount of data was collected including artefacts, scientific specimens and photographs. The expedition was ground-breaking for the time.
