Map is the first to detail evidence of more than 150 massacres involving almost every aboriginal clan between 1788 and 1872.



The map, published by the University of Newcastle's Centre for the 21st Century, drew on sources such as settler diaries, newspaper reports, evidence from Aboriginal groups and state and federal archives, Ryan told reporters.

The map was an "incredible historical project that will have positive repercussions," aboriginal leader Warren Mundine told Reuters.
