In 1880 the ethnographers Lorimer Fison and Alfred Howitt wrote:
‘It may be stated broadly that the advance of settlement, has, upon the frontier at least, been marked by a line of blood. The actual conflict of the two races has varied in intensity and duration …but the tide of settlement has advanced along a ever-widening line, breaking the native tribes with the first waves and overwhelming their wrecks with its flood’.
