Introduction*

In a previous paper we reported on the recent initiation of teaching and research in archaeology at the Northern Territory University (Hiscock and Walters 1991). Rapid growth has resulted in many changes over the last two years and it is an opportune moment to describe the current activities at Northern Territory University (NTU). The growth of archaeology at the university is clearly visible in increased student numbers (Fig. 1). Although the imposition of DEET quotas on university intakes has slowed further increases in undergraduate numbers, it is clear that archaeology enrolments have passed the critical threshold, above which a department with vitality is viable over the long-term. One of the most exciting aspects of this growth is the research now being carried out by staff and students. The purpose of this paper is to describe the current research in archaeology being carried out at the NTU.

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