Abstract

Inside the Outline examines the Marapikurrinya (Port Hedland) engraved rock art province, using style as a proxy for group identity. The Marapikurrinya engravings are contextualised within their broader archaeological context using ethnography, mythological narrative and material culture. This rock art is linked temporally to sea-level stabilisation in the region during the mid-Holocene, and consequent social reorganisation through changes in style and content. This research mobilises the Marapikurrinya rock art as an active and agentive medium through which people manage social and environmental change.
