The true story of Ned Kelly's last stand

Paul Terry
RRP $29.95
Published by Allen & Unwin in association with the State Library of Victoria
Paperback 296pp Illustrated ISBN 9781743310069

When Ned Kelly fought his last stand at Glenrowan, his suit of armour and a tiny bush pub became part of Australian folklore. But what really happened at Glenrowan Inn when the Kelly Gang took up arms against the government? Who was there when the bullets began to fly and how did their actions help to set the course of history?

Almost 130 years after the gunfight, a team of archaeologists has peeled back the layers of history at Glenrowan to reveal new information about the battle, and to uncover stories of the people caught up in the legendary confrontation.

Paul Terry was involved in the archaeological survey of the siege site at Glenrowan and produced the ABC TV documentary Ned Kelly uncovered.
