Another consequence of British colonisation was European seizure of land and water resources, with the decimation of kangaroo and other indigenous foodstuffs which continued throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries as rural lands were converted for sheep and cattle grazing. In there occurred the first recorded use of Aboriginal trackerswho proved very adept at navigating their way through the Australian landscape and finding people. During the s, Tasmanian Aboriginal skulls were particularly sought internationally for studies into craniofacial anthropometry.
The skeleton of Truganinia Tasmanian Aboriginal who died inwas exhumed within two years of her death despite her pleas to the contrary by the Royal Society of Tasmaniaand later placed on display.
