Introduction*

Recent excavation of a shell mound on Seven Mile Creek, just south of Gladstone, Central Queensland, has revealed a dense midden deposit dated to 3700 cal. BP (Wk-8327). This result provides some of the earliest evidence of highly focussed marine resource exploitation from an open archaeological site on the Queensland coast.

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