9780702236914: Pygmonia

The result of a chance encounter with an early 20th-century photograph of Pygmy-sized people in Far North Queensland, this book discloses the fascinating truth about Pygmy people, who, contrary to common belief, still live in isolated pockets around the world, from South America to Southeast Asia. As it explores several tribes of Aboriginal pygmies from Australia's rainforest—where many of their descendents still live—this enlightening account lays bare the importance of archaeology in modern Australia.

Book Description University of Queensland Press, Australia, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In the tradition of the bestselling Longitude comes the fascinating story of one man s quest to discover the secret land of the Pygmies, in northern Australia. A recent chapter in the history wars has returned a colonial-era mystery to the limelight- the existence of several tribes of Pygmy Aboriginal peoples in the Cairns and Yarrabah Peninsula regions in Queensland. Despite a general belief in their extinction, their descendants still live around Cairns, as archaeologist Peter McAllister found on a recent research trip. Attempting to unravel their origins led McAllister to discover the fascinating truth about Pygmy peoples, who, contrary to common belief, still live in isolated pockets around the world, from South America to South-East Asia. But are these distinct populations related? How do the Greek and Roman Pygmy myths hold up against reality? Is the short stature of Pygmy peoples due to genetic codes or environmental conditions? And are today s Pygmies remnants of an ancient Pygmonia - land of the Pygmies - which early anthropologists believed had once spanned the globe? Quirky and insightful, Pygmonia takes you on a fascinating journey to answer these questions. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780702236914
