    3. “Ayer’s Rock” is the archaic name for Uluru, named so because some white man walked in and said “Look at this! I’m gonna claim this as my own and name it after a white guy cos we euros don’t a crap about them black fuckers” – and yet the name “Ayer’s Rock” is still technically applicable, but as more of a subtitle than a true name, which is – or course – Uluru, as named by the Anangu tribes. You may also not know that the site is of great spiritual significance to the Anangu people and climbing Uluru – though not forbidden – is not appreciated.

      Similarly, but to a lesser degree, Mt ConnEr’s true name is Attila or Artilla, but at the moment it’s still more commonly referred to as Mt Conner.
