"Leviathan is about human interaction with these gigantic awe-inspiring creatures, and it is also about the interaction between cultures and cultural diversity - this is what makes it so exciting. A great example is the history of Ngarrindjeri whalers at Encounter Bay – where Aboriginal men, employed by colonists, showed great skill as harpooners." says Dr Adam Paterson, Curator.
Leviathan: An Astonishing History of Whales opens at the South Australian Maritime Museum in Port Adelaide on Friday December 15, and admission is free with normal Museum entry fees applying. For more information see the website or the Maritime Museum Facebook page.
