    • Abstract: Westaway, Michael C; Cupper, Matthew L; Johnston, Harvey; Graham, Ian
      This paper presents some results of a ground penetrating radar survey conducted to establish the extent of the Willlandra Fossil Trackway, and further mapping of the footprints and intermingled tracks. In addition, it includes a refinement of the age range of the trackway, through further OSL dating, to between 19,000 and 20,000 years ago. Finally, it also provides a discussion of the geochemical composition of the trackway.

  • Issue 76 - Further radiocarbon dates from Dabangay, a mid- to late
           Holocene settlement site in Western Torres Strait
    • Abstract: Wright, Duncan; Jacobsen, Geraldine
      Dabangay , on the island of Mabuyag, is one of only two known mid-Holocene sites in Torres Strait. Eleven new radiocarbon dates, combined with nine previous determinations, clarify its site formation processes and settlement history. The sequence shows two sustained settlement periods between 7239-3211 cal. BP and 1815 cal. BP-present, with little evidence for use during the intervening period. This differs from Badu 15, approximately 15 km south of Mabuyag, where human activity became sporadic after 6500 cal. BP. There is no evidence for a settlement expansion at 2500 BP as observed at other sites in the western Torres Strait. These differences suggest varied human responses to post-glacial marine transgression and the subsequent sea-level high stand in western Torres Strait.

  • Issue 76 - Birriwilk Rockshelter: A mid- to late Holocene site in
           Manilikarr country, Southwest Arnhem Land, Northern Territory
    • Abstract: Shine, Denis; Wright, Duncan; Denham, Tim; Aplin, Ken; Hiscock, Peter; Parker, Kim; Walton, Ronni
      Recent excavations at the Birriwilk rockshelter in Mikinj Valley, southwest Arnhem Land, have revealed evidence for mid- to late Holocene settlement, including a major period of site use in the last millennium. The site is important to the traditional owners, with a rich oral tradition associated with 'Birriwilk', an ancestor of the Urningangk tribe, who is depicted in rock art at the site. Oral traditions link Birriwilk with an adjacent lagoon, as well as a number of other rock art sites and features in the landscape, including the renowned Ubirr complex. The Birriwilk site and vicinity are significant places to the Nayinggul family, traditional owners for the Manilikarr estate. This post-fieldwork report summarises key archaeological findings at Birriwilk, using frequencies of stone artefacts and faunal remains as proxies of occupation from ca 5000 years ago. The most intense occupation occurred within the last 700 years, a period characterised by foraging and hunting in adjacent wetland habitats, changing technological emphasis to the manufacture of bifacial quartzite points, increased artefact discard rates and increased ochre grinding. The site has little archaeological evidence of use during the last 200 years, although oral histories indicate it was visited regularly until the mid-twentieth century. The rockshelter remains an important story site today.

  • Issue 76 - Gummingurru - a community archaeology knowledge journey
    • Abstract: Ross, Anne; Ulm, Sean; Tobane, Brian
      The Gummingurru stone arrangement site complex on the Darling Downs of Queensland (Qld), Australia, was originally an initiation site attended by Aboriginal people from many parts of southeast Qld and northeast New South Wales en route to the triennial intergroup gatherings in the nearby Bunya Mountains. The activities at Gummingurru and the Bunya Mountains included knowledge sharing, alliancemaking, trade and exchange. In recent times the journeys to and from Gummingurru have changed. Although knowledge sharing and alliance-making continue, there are new aspects to the journeys. In this paper we outline the contemporary social framework within which Gummingurru is situated, emphasising the community/researcher/student networks and educational outputs that have evolved over the life of this community-based collaborative research project and review the positive lessons learned by all participants in the knowledge journeys associated with the site and its cultural landscape.

  • Issue 76 - The opportunities and challenges of graduate level teaching in
           cultural heritage management
    • Abstract: Wallis, Lynley A; Gorman, Alice C; Burke, Heather
      In recent years there has been greater examination and discussion of teaching and learning in archaeology, and exploration of how best to reconcile the sometimes competing requirements of students, industry, teachers and university administrators. A key response by the academy in Australia has been the emergence of graduate level programmes. Drawing on the experiences of staff, students and industry partners of the Flinders University Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Management graduate programmes, we reflect on the opportunities such programmes afford to effect positive change in the training of graduates, the challenges they pose and the contrast they offer to the standard and long accepted Honours degree. We demonstrate that carefully crafted graduate level teaching programmes, with strong involvement of industry stakeholders, offer practical solutions to the issue of providing students with a well-rounded degree, whilst also meeting the particular needs of the cultural heritage sector to produce work-ready graduates.

  • Issue 76 - From the moat to the Murray: Teaching practical archaeology at
           La Trobe University, Australia
    • Abstract: Cosgrove, Richard; Frankel, David; Thomas, David
      This paper presents two current approaches to teaching practical aspects of archaeology at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. One makes use of a simulated site constructed on the university campus where senior undergraduates are introduced to the complexities of excavation and project management from planning through to publication in a 'safe', artificial environment. The second is a field school for fourth year Honours students where the focus is on survey and documentation of Indigenous sites in a 'real world' situation, where the data gathered over several years will eventually be used to develop a cultural heritage management plan for the study area. These initiatives are considered in the context of current concerns regarding the training of students as professionals.

      Results from comprehensive surveys of Australian professional archaeologists undertaken in 2005 and 2010 are considered in the context of disciplinary trends, focusing on changes in access and participation, archaeological workplaces, qualifications and skill gaps. Strong growth is demonstrated in the professional archaeology sector between 2005 and 2010, showing substantial restructuring in the last five years, with an increase in Indigenous archaeology and a corresponding decrease in other subfields, especially historical archaeology. An analysis of self-assessed skill sets and skill gaps shows that the training of many professionals continues to leave significant gaps in core skill and knowledge areas which are consistent across industry subfields.

  • Issue 76 - Late Holocene climate change and human behavioural variability
           in the coastal wet -dry tropics of northern Australia: Evidence from a
           pilot study of oxygen isotopes in marine bivalve shells from
           archaeological sites
    • Abstract: Brockwell, Sally; Marwick, Ben; Bourke, Patricia; Faulkner, Patrick; Willan, Richard
      Previously it has been argued that midden analysis from three geographically distinct coastal regions of tropical northern Australia (Hope Inlet, Blyth River, Blue Mud Bay) demonstrates that changes through time in Aboriginal mollusc exploitation reflect broader coastal environmental transformations associated with late Holocene climatic variability (Bourke et al. 2007). It was suggested that, while a direct link between environmental change and significant cultural change in the archaeological record has yet to be demonstrated unambiguously, midden analysis has the potential to provide the as-yet missing link between changes in climate, environment and human responses over past millennia. We test this hypothesis with a preliminary sclerochronological analysis (i.e. of sequential stable isotopes of oxygen) of archaeological shell samples from all three regions. Our findings suggest the existence of variations in temperature and rainfall indicative of an increasing trend to aridity from 2000 to 500 cal. BP, consistent with previous palaeoenvironmental work across northern Australia.

  • Issue 76 - A 3000 year old dog burial in Timor-Leste
    • Abstract: Gonzalez, Antonio; Clark, Geoffery; O'Connor, Sue; Matisoo-Smith, Lisa
      The domestic dog (Canis familiaris) is considered to be the oldest domesticated animal in the world. It arrived in Island Southeast Asia and Australia-New Guinea relatively late in the Holocene, though the timing and means of its dispersal remain unclear. We report a dog burial from Timor-Leste dated to 3000 cal. BP. Morphometric analysis demonstrates strong affinities between this individual and contemporary domestic dog groups, and particularly with the 'village dog' type, indicating it was indeed domesticated, rather than feral-wild. Isotope values which indicate a diet dominated by terrestrial plant foods rather than hunted foods suggest an association between the Timor dog and agriculturalists. Results suggest that the range expansion of 'C. familiaris' in the Indo-Pacific is associated with the dispersal of farming groups in prehistory.
