This study is about ideology. In many ways it is possible to argue that almost any archaeological text, particularly one created within the welldefined academic structure, is “about ideology” (see, for example, Tilley 1989, 1993), but it is explicitly true in this volume. When I began postgraduate studies, I intended to pursue the notion of adaptation, a largely undertheorized and uncritically examined category in Australian historical archaeology into which much research appears to have been “conveniently” placed. Initially I approached this from a relatively secure economics standpoint, asking: What is adaptation? What does it mean in terms of evolutionary theory? How has it been used by historical archaeologists?
