A recent excavation of an island Aboriginal site near Gisborne, Victoria

Introduction*

One of the few inland late Holocene sites to be dated was investigated earlier this year. The excavation was one of very few to occur in Victoria during the last six years. The site (7822/488) is an open Aboriginal site situated on a meander bend on Kororoit Creek at Gisborne South, about 25 km northwest of Melbourne. The site occurs within 5 km of Sunbury (which is noted for its Aboriginal earth rings) and the archaeologically rich upper Maribyrnong valley where at least two sites have been excavated (Dry Creek and Green Gully).

*Note that an abstract was not included with this paper, and so the introductory paragraph has been included here instead of the abstract.
