Formatted abstract
‘What’s Changing?’ is a revised and substantially updated version of Attenbrow’s doctoral research completed in 1987, which documents and explores the archaeology of the Upper Mangrove Creek Catchment (UMCC), located in the Sydney Basin.

The monograph is a substantial volume reflecting many decades of Attenbrow’s research and critical thinking. As such, it is not possible to do it justice in the short space of this book review. It should be read by professional archaeologists interested in Australian and regional prehistory, demographic change, and the role of multiple processes in shaping the archaeological record. It is also a useful teaching resource, being a clear example of a carefully planned and well-executed research project.

There is no doubt this monograph will continue to make an important contribution to Australian archaeology for years to come, and I look forward to further tests of proposed habitation and land-use models (pp.222-223, 241, 243-245) and the results of current and future research projects identified by Attenbrow.
