This research employed a multi-scalar GIS approach to analyse rock art and surface archaeological sites from two contiguous segments of the Drysdale and King George River catchments, located In the northeast Kimberley, Australia. This spatial analysis examined changes in peoples' occupation and mobility patterns during the terminal Pleistocene and Holocene and how these were conditioned by climatic fluctuations and/or social and symbolic dynamics related to territoriality and Interconnectivity. The results provided a comprehensive 'dialectical' model of occupation and mobility, which has captured both the complexity and contradictory nature of the interplay between responsivity and agency in human behaviour.
