Abstract

Excavations at the site of Moonggaroonggoo in the southern Kimberley were conducted at the request of Gooniyandi elders from the nearby Muludja Community. The Gooniyandi people were mainly interested in the age of the deposit, and in comparing the food remains with their traditional knowledge. The site dates from the late Holocene to the present and contains rich technological and faunal assemblages as well as macrobotanical records. Analysis of these records will continue in collaboration with the Gooniyandi community.
