Abstract

Aboriginal hunter-gatherers briefly occupied a large rockshelter on Bomaderry Creek at about 1900 years bp and about 1400 years bp. While in residence they subsisted on a variety of local plants and animals, but their life style was also linked closely to that of people who occupied sites nearer the coast farther south. Excavation revealed not only aspects of their economic life but also the manner in which the evidence they left behind had been modified later by such agencies as human disturbance, scavenging by dingoes and weathering.
