Abstract

No archaeology data has been published from the Stonehenge region of central western Queensland. Indeed the only archaeological activity carried out in the area to this point in time, has been sporadic forays by one or two consultants, leading to a restricted amount of information being available for public comment. The following paper begins the process of addressing this situation by discussing archaeological sites found during the field component of a consultancy in the Stonehenge-Longreach district. General interpretations are offered regarding prehistoric human behaviour and the paper also highlights some problems associated with the interpretation of archaeological material in the field.
