Landscape destruction and heritage mismanagement in Murujuga (Western Australia)

conference contribution
posted on 2016-01-01, 00:00 authored by Antonio Gonzalez Zarandona
Since the 1960s, the landscape of Murujuga, the largest archaeological site in the world, has been altered by the operation of mining companies, which have destroyed some of the unique petroglyphs found in open air. Different heritage management projects have been introduced to mitigate the impact that the mining companies have inflicted to the landscape. Whilst some of these projects have involve the local community, the majority have neglected and overlooked the social value of the local Indigenous community. It is thus necessary to review the methods so far implemented in Murujuga to envisage a solution to this conflict.
