Dolphin Island Archaeology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapterpeer-review


Fieldwork on Dolphin Island focused on Flying Foam Passage, in an area described in historical accounts as being used by the colonial-era pearling industry from the mid-1860s. While some historical accounts of the Flying Foam Passage are provided here, we refer the reader to Chapter 18 ‘Lifeways to Massacre’ for a wider treatment of historical activities relevant to the northern islands of the archipelago.
