[Excerpt] The general map (Fig. 2.1) of archaeological remains of Skew Valley and Gum Tree Valley near Dampier (Western Australia) reveals an obvious proximal relationship between the various water sources, shell clusters and dense concentrations of petroglyphs. Petroglyphs are rare or absent in the areas between the shell middens. They become, however, more numerous as one approaches the shell mounds, which themselves are marked by the presence of water sources most often by semi-permanent pools in the beds of temporary watercourses. Throughout the area, the strongest concentrations of petroglyphs thus are associated with habitation. There are some exceptions, notably at the summit of Gum Tree Valley where a group of petroglyphs exist despite the area now lacking water. …
