Notes
-
20%
of Australians have a criminal in their
ancestry
- The population of aborigines reduced by
90%
between 1700 and 1800
Overall, the use of Australia as a place for
exiled British convicts has had a large impact in
the way in which Australian society is controlled
and run and it is still a popular part of their nation-
al history, however historians no longer link it to
a lot of modern history happening in the country.
The transportation affected all aspects of Austral-
ia at the time, remoulding it into a place for the
West to be prosperous.
