We will comprehensively investigate one of Australia's most extraordinary bodies of rock art, spread across Arnhem Land's Wellington Range, in order to answer a range of important archaeological research questions, provide Traditional Owners with a comprehensive digital record of their rock art heritage and develop a long term management plan. Field research will include survey, 2D and 3D rock art recording, limited excavation and sampling for dating. We also will situate Wellington Range rock art in regional and global contexts in order to better understand long term north Australian Aboriginal experience and its expression in relation to other huntergatherer groups and to gain new insight into human cultural and cognitive development.
