Addressing Neglected Narratives Through The Maritime Cultural Landscape Of Point Pearce Aboriginal Mission/Burgiyana, South Australia (2016)

This case study was used to assess whether the maritime...

The archaeology of ship communication: Preliminary study of an early 17th-century Dutch poste restante in the Indian Ocean (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Wendy Van Duivenvoorde.

On their way to the East Indies, seamen of Dutch East India Company ships chiselled messages into rocks and boulders and, at the base of these rocks, often left letters, carefully wrapped in layers of canvas and tar and sealed inside lead envelopes. The idea was that the crew of the next Dutch ship to anchor in that same place would pen down the message on the rock and collect the letters. Examples of these so-called ‘postal stones’ have been found on St Helena Island, at the Cape of Good Hope...

Can Artificial Reef Wrecks Reduce Diver Impacts on Historic Shipwrecks? A Case Study from Australia (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Joanne L Edney. Dirk HR Spennemann.

Wreck diving is an increasingly popular activity, and has seen increasing numbers of divers visiting historic shipwreck sites. In some cases this has led to adverse impacts on these sites. A range of management strategies are used to manage diver impacts, ranging from exclusion to limiting the number of divers. Another strategy that deserves closer evaluation the use of artificial reef wrecks. Artificial reefs wrecks are popular attractions, and the number of vessels being sunk as dive sites has...

DOCUMENT Citation Only Por Gubau Gizu ya Sagulal .. Louise Manas.

In attending to the life or lives of things, biographical approaches in archaeology focus attention to the vitality of objects in change and to narrative. Torres Strait Islander biographies similarly explore themes around the transformation of things though tend rather more to emphasise place in structuring historical narratives. In Torres Strait, history is emplaced, encountered and generative. This paper traces the pathways of Mualgal (the people of Mua Island, western Torres Strait, NE...

DOCUMENT Citation Only Karen Steelman. Liam Brady. John Bradley. Amanda Kearney.

Working with Yanyuwa elders, we collected seven rock painting samples for radiocarbon dating from Kamadarringabaya rock shelter on Vanderlin Island in the southwest Gulf of Carpentaria (Northern Territory). Hand motifs – prints and stencils – dominate the site, covering the shelter walls and roof, and are said by Yanyuwa to be the hands of the Namurlajanyugku spirit beings. In control experiments, negligible levels of humic acid contamination were shown to be present in the unpainted rock;...
