Introduction*

The excavation at Hann River 1 was part of an archaeological reconnaissance of the central plateaux region of Cape York Peninsula. In contrast to the adjacent Laura Basin area, little archaeological research had previously been undertaken in central Cape York Peninsula (cf. Morwood and Hobbs 1995). Hann River 1 provides the first evidence for Aboriginal prehistory in the region. The reconnaissance fieldwork also included a general survey of local sandstone scarps and the detailed recording of rock art sites.

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