In January 1788 the First Fleet arrived in New South Wales and a thousand British men and women, some of them convicts and some of them free, encountered the people who would be their new neighbours-the beach nomads of Australia. 'These people mixed with ours,' wrote a British observer soon after landfall, 'and all hands danced together.' What followed would shape relations between the peoples for the next two centuries.
