Disturbing new map of shows the locations of hundreds of Aboriginal massacres
Australian History: Map reveals Australia’s shameful secret
AUSTRALIAN history is being turned on its head by a groundbreaking project which is documenting hundreds of horrific massacres that make up our bloody past.
Today, a disturbing new map has revealed the terrifying scale and brutality of the 250 mass killings which took place in every Australian state apart from Western Australia and claimed the lives of some 6200 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The violent clashes also resulted in the deaths of just under 100 colonists, but indigenous people were murdered far more frequently with an average of 25 killed in every massacre.
