Barrack Hill - A History of Anglesea Barracks 1811-2011</em>

On the 2nd of December 2011 the Anglesea Barracks, in Hobart, celebrated its 200th. anniversary. This date recognises the time when Governor Lachlan Macquarie formally identified Barrack Hill as the place for Hobart Town's new barracks.  This is the oldest continually operating military barracks in Australia and contains a mix of Colonial Georgian, Victorian, Federation and later buildings within a precinct that has been recognised as one of the most important heritage sites in Tasmania and, indeed, Australia.
This book explores the development of the Barracks and reveals many of the previously untold stories of its occupiers over the past two hundred years.
