About the Author

Philip Jones is a social historian and ethnographer based at the South Australian Museum in Adelaide. He has undertaken extensive fieldwork with Aboriginal people in southern and central Australia. His historical research is based on those relationships, as well as a deep familiarity with museum artefacts and their trajectories, through time and space.


'It displaced all other reading until I reached the very last page. A truly remarkable book.' * Sir David Attenborough *
'[Ochre and Rust is] a compelling and powerful study that addresses a wide range of issues, including the sources of ethnographic knowledge, the premises of museum practices, the impact of missionary endeavors, the roots of artistic innovations, and more. ... Engagingly written, meticulously documented, and richly illustrated, it is a work that deserves a broad readership.' -- Journal of Interdisciplinary History
