Radiocarbon dates for bifacial points at Scotch Creek 1, Northern Territory

23rd January 2014

Mike A. Smith

Introduction*

Scotch Creek 1 is situated on a tributary of the Adelaide River, on seasonally inundated coastal plains lying between Darwin and the western Arnhem Land escarpment. Apart from earthen mounds it is one of the few stratified open sites in this region to have been excavated (see Smith and Brockwell 1994). Intercalated with floodplain sediments the site contains a rich assemblage of bifacial points, debris associated with point manufacture, and organic remains such as eggshell and bone.

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