Tasmanian History

I am interested in all aspects of Tasmanian History from its pre-history

through to its discovery by Able Tasman in 1642

to the British and French exploration and settlement of Van Diemen's Land,

its early development and renaming to Tasmania

down to modern times.

My special interests are

  • Punishment

  • Buildings

  • Tourism

  • Crime

  • Law
