One of the most famous paintings from the early British colonization of Australia depicts a dramatic incident in which Governor Arthur Phillip, was wounded by a spear thrown by an Aboriginal Australian man.

Professor Carl Bridge and Dr Sandy O'Sullivan attempt to decipher possible motives for the attack and discuss what the painting reveals about the relationship between the Aboriginal people and European colonists.
