Abstract

© 2016 Australian Archaeological Association.Re-excavation of a shelter in Windjana Gorge National Park,Southern Kimberley has extended the known occupation sequence of the site from the mid Holocene to the terminal Pleistocene. The site was previously excavated in 1994 and a non-basal date of ~7,000 cal. BP was recorded. Significantly,the chronostratigraphic sequence represented in the earlier excavation is substantially different to the recent excavation demonstrating stratigraphic variation within a relatively small rock shelter and the need for extensive inter-and intersite and intrasite sampling prior to modeling regional occupation patterning.
