Dates from archaeological excavations on the Pilbara coastline and islands of the Dampier Archipelago, Western Australia

Introduction*

As part of PhD research into patterns of Aboriginal occupation of the arid Pilbara coastline, excavations were carried out at eleven archaeological sites. This is the first regional study to be carried out for the coastal Pilbara, north of North West Cape. Prior to this, archaeological work in the region had concentrated on the Burrup Peninsula (Lorblanchet and Jones 1980; Vinnicombe 1987; Veth et al. 1993). Radiocarbon dates (all uncorrected and uncalibrated) have been obtained from five of the sites, as detailed in Table 1.

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