Archaeology Seminar Series : "Breaking the radiocarbon barrier? A critical assessment of the earliest dates and models for the settlement of Sahul " Other events...
Peter has worked on the evolution of desert, maritime and symbolic capabilities of Indigenous people from Australia, the Torres Strait, the Aru Islands and East Timor. He has carried out collaborative excavations and dating programs on sites which breach the ‘radiocarbon barrier’ in the Kimberley, Western Desert and on the North West Shelf. He has critiqued the primary data and first round of publications from Madjedbebe in recent reviews. As with his initial review of the stratigraphic association and dating of Homo floresiensis outlined in talks at the University of Arizona and UC Berkeley and then published, in this talk at UWA he will outline the strengths (and limitations) of the case for Australian sites breaking the radiocarbon barrier. As evidence for early modern human and Neanderthal art emerges from Africa and Spain it is time to reflect on the evidence and strategies being employed here.
