This site represents the best information available to our research team and is a starting point for further research. Please read the Introduction to understand the information on this site.
With the launch of stage 4 of this site, the project is being concluded and is expected to remain as a resource for the future, reflecting the state of research and the best information available at the time 2022. A digital archive will also be produced for long term deposit in an institutional archive.
We are still happy to hear from you, and if there are any major problems we may consider making some changes, depending on availability.
Throughout the project we have welcomed suggestions for additions or modifications to the site, the data and the map. We take potential errors seriously. This was an ongoing project that invited corrections from the public. Each potential modification to data was investigated and information on the website updated accordingly. Due to the large volume of comments, it sometimes took a long time to work through each case as we are a small team with limited funding.
We maintain rigorous standards for inclusion and use conservative estimates. This does not mean we are dismissing or downplaying the incidents - instead we hope to protect the integrity of the information and that this will help bring more evidence to light.
We hope the colonial frontier massacres website provides a valuable reference for future research, and helps further understanding of our history.
