Many everyday tasks involved using tools and implements that are unrecognisable in our modern world. The Australian Aboriginal history of daily life as well as that of the first colonists all provide intriguing stories of how we all used to live and how we gradually moved on to depending on gadgets fast food and other modern ways of life that our ancestors from the past would find amazing.
