Both authors are part of the Archaeology program at LaTrobe University in Melbourne and Lawrence is the president of the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology. Both authors have written numerous books, chapters and articles on Australian historical archaeology.
From the reviews: "An Archaeology of Australia since 1788 succeeds in presenting the broad-range of Australian historical archaeology and its contribution to understanding Australia's past. The authors are to be congratulated in undertaking such a task and setting the scene for the next decade of growth in the field. This is a work that all serious historical archaeologists need, especially those formulating research designs for projects whether they be salvage archaeology or research archaeology." (Iain Stuart, Australian Archaeology, Issue 72, June, 2011) "The narrative writing style is accessible for most audiences as they need not be well-versed in Australian archaeology to benefit from this book. ... is devoted to well-researched and influential themes of Australian archaeology and comprises figures, tables and numerous intriguing discussions that will precipitate and entice future research. The book was written to 'present an overview of the material evidence ... of Australian post contact history and the conclusions reached by historical archaeology' (p2) and with much enthusiasm the authors have achieved this aim."
