Determination of prehistoric mammal acquisition patterns using GIS

05th January 2014

Introduction*

Previous research in Australia’s central Queensland highlands implies mammal exploitation occurred from visited sites as a secondary activity. Beaton (1991a, 1991b) suggests the large amount of Macrozamia husks from his excavations indicate intensive Macrozamia processing. His broader conclusions link Macrozamia use to increases in ceremonial activities and large gatherings (Beaton 1991b:82). Morwood’s (1984) synopsis of the central Queensland highlands’ data supports varied activities were undertaken at prehistoric sites.

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