RHYS JONESíS ARCHAEOLOGICAL WORK TRANSFORMED how traditional Tasmanian Aboriginal people are understood. As controversial as it was innovative, Jonesís ground-breaking research and dramatic ideas inflamed and inspired his fellow academics, Aboriginal people and the wider populace. Positively or negatively, Jones has influenced almost all subsequent scholarship into Aboriginal Tasmania. What this essay sets out to do is to explore what influenced Jones.
