Introduction*

This paper reports on the radiocarbon chronology of two occupation sites discovered during a geomorphologic investigation of the Todd River catchment in Central Australia (Fig. 1). While it is widely accepted that the arid zone has been occupied since the late Pleistocene (Smith 1987, 1996), there are no dates available for the eastern MacDonnell Ranges. Data provided here on late Holocene archaeological sites will contribute to the larger spatial and temporal framework of human occupation of the Central Australian arid zone.

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