A Heritage History of the South-East of South Australia

This essay first appeared as ‘The thematic and chronological history’ section of the report Heritage of the South East prepared by Danvers Architects for the Department of Environment and Planning and published in 1984. This was a report on the heritage survey of the South East of South Australia, a regional survey carried out as designated in the State Historic Preservation Plan. The study team comprised Ron Danvers, Robert Linn, Hamish Angas, Robert Martin and Michael Brock. The essay appears here by kind permission of the department with minor variations

Rob Linn studied history at the University of Adelaide. He taught history at a number of tertiary institutions and, in 1985, established with his wife, Jane, a historical consultancy. Their work has included commissioned projects: from small-scale research to the production of high quality publications, and to the management of large commercial and international oral history projects. Rob has written over 30 books.
