Inter-regional variation in glass bottle reduction and technology in the Northern Territory

31st December 2013

Gerard Niemoeller and Daryl Guse

Introduction*

Contact material was discovered during a cultural resource management (CRM) artefact collection in the Pine Creek region in July 1998. To date, no contact period research has been done in this region. Gold mining began in the region in 1872, and was most prolific during the periods 1873–1886, 1894–1898 and in the 1930s. Encounters between Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures ensued and, while aggressive contact was generally recorded, shifts in Aboriginal technology are largely absent from ethnohistoric records. This paper contributes information about glass technology in northern Australia.

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