Topographic archaeology revisited: regional archaeological structure in the southern Wimmera, Victoria, Australia

C. Bird, Jim Rhoads

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper we explore the relationship between regional distributions of surface archaeological remains and long term landscape features in the semi-arid southern Wimmera region of Victoria. We conclude that both point and linear water sources concentrate settlement at particular points in the landscape (‘sites’). However, at a regional level, the nature and distribution of water resources also infl uences the character of the background scatter.
