Kin: A Real People’s History of Our Nation

Nick Brodie

From convicts, goldminers and sailors, to highcountry horsemen, nurses and soldiers - and almost everyone in between - KIN is about generations of real people living real lives.


Join historian and archaeologist Nick Brodie as he traces his family back to their first arrivals in Australia. As their lives intersect, KIN provides a unique historical insight into Australia’s past: colonies grow and wars are fought as Nick follows his people and their children across land and sea, in their everyday occupations and through their hardships and most memorable events. Follow Nick’s journey to discover how his kinfolk lived the bigger story of the history of Australia, as their stories become both his and ours.
