Introduction*

The Roonka Flat site has produced the largest well-provenanced pre-European Aboriginal burial population in Australia. The site is located on an elevated sand flat on the west bank of the lower Murray River near Blanchetown, South Australia. The skeletal remains have been studied by a range of specialists in mortuary analysis, physical anthropology, dental anthropology, palaeopathology and palaeodiet (Pretty and Kricun 1989; Pate 1997a, 1998, in press).
