Baldwin Spencer emigrated to Australia in 1887 and in 1896 he and his colleague F.J. Gillen embarked on the most intensive field-work then attempted in Australia.

The outcome of this work resulted in “Native Tribes of Central Australia” (1899), which was to influence contemporary theories on social evolution and interpretations of the origins of art and ceremonial traditions.
