Alan Williams continues from Billy’s talk by exploring how population and mobility of Aboriginal people developed over the last 50,000 years. Using the results of his PhD research and case-studies from the Sydney region, he explores the highs and lows of prehistoric populations through some of the most extreme climates humans have ever faced, including the Last Glacial Maximum and intensification of the El Nino Southern Oscillation.

Alan Williams is an archaeologist and PhD student at the Australian National University, and manager at Archaeological and Heritage Management Solutions Pty Ltd. He has over 15 academic publications and 100 consulting reports to his name, with a focus in his research on the investigation of Aboriginal archaeology and climate change across Australia.
