Robyn used to think history was boring until, working on an archaeological dig in Melbourne, she discovered history under her fingernails. She dug up a husband there, too. Now they live with their 12-year-old daughter in a country town with too many cafes. Robyn thinks housework is a dirty word; her hobby is collecting dust. Robyn is author of three books for adults: 'Bearbrass: Imagining Early Melbourne', 'Nothing But Gold: The diggers of 1852', and 'The Man Who Lost Himself: The unbelievable story of the Tichborne Claimant'. Bearbrass won a Victorian Premier s Literary Award in 1995.


A wonderfully strong narrative.
