Frontier Life captures the experiences of people living on the edge of European settlement across the frontiers of North America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Through a huge array of digitised primary source materials, it documents the relationships and interaction between new arrivals and indigenous peoples, and the results of these encounters: the creation of new states and trade networks, internal migration, and the marginalisation and decline of indigenous peoples.
Time period covered 1650 - 1920.
A collection of primary sources, made up of nearly 200 million pages of digitized historical content – maps, photos, newspapers, manuscripts, pamphlets, portraits, and much more. A vast range of resources including Eighteenth Century and Nineteenth Century Collections Online, periodicals such as the Economist and the Financial Times, and digitized materials from the Smithsonian Institution.
