Introduction*

This report describes a recently obtained radiocarbon determination from the Nara Inlet 1 rockshelter site on Hook Island, off the central Queensland coast. The new date was obtained in order to more clearly refine changes in stone artefact discard densities within the site as part of a wider technological study, centring on the South Molle Island quarry (see Lamb 1996 and  in prep.).

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