The Volcanic Tableland contains an array of archaeological sites created by Native American people, who significantly changed their settlement and subsistence strategies over time, from sporadic hunting to intensive plant processing. By adding rock art to other markers of past human behaviour I provide information regarding families and cultural group/s that occupied the Tableland since the Late Pleistocene/Early Holocene. I use stylistic and spatial analyses to identify a local rock art sequence, and to identify significant associations with other archaeological features. I also contextualise the rock art with projectile points and obsidian hydration readings to ascertain a potential absolute chronology.
