Abstract

 Regional archaeology requires units that are defined by past material culture distributions and a defined sampling strategy. The latter has become common in Australia, but geography or environment has been the basis of areal definitions. On these bases, Attenbrow’s studies of the Sydney region are fine examples of what could be done more widely with the archaeological data now available.
