Archaeology Seminar Series 2017 : Documenting the Holocene transition in Aboriginal stone tool production, north-eastern Kimberley, Western Australia Other events...
This PhD research proposes to tackle the definition of changes seen in lithic artefact production in the North East Kimberley during the Holocene. Previous archaeological studies have shown modifications in the manufacture of stone tools in the Kimberley and the adjacent Arnhem Land region during the Holocene. Furthermore, the rock art record from North East Kimberley displays important changes through time in weapons and objects associated with human figures. This research will offer new insights into technological changes by applying an analytical method rarely used in Australia, the chaîne opératoire approach, to stone tool assemblages from rockshelters and open site excavations in North Eastern Kimberley.
