About Steve Webb

Following the succesful completion of a B.A.(Hons). and Ph.D in Biological Anthropology and Pre-History from the Australian National University in Canberra, Steve Webb was appointed Lecturer at ANU in 1984. Initially his research focused on the traditional health of Aboriginal people, eventually leading to his extensive work on the description of the earliest fossil human remains in Australia.
Dr. Webb has played a significant role in the repatriation of Aboriginal skeletal remains and works extensively with Aboriginal communities and museums around Australia. He has undertaken field work in central Australia researching the palaeoenvironments of the Simpson Desert and Lake Eyre basin.
Aside from his present position as Professor of Australian Studies at Bond University, he is a consultant to the Australian Museum in Canberra, the Australian Museum in Sydney and is an Honorary Research Fellow in the Queensland Museum.
