Abstract

Archaeological excavation of the Echidna's rest site was undertaken in 1985 as part of an M.A. thesis research project at the Australian National University (David 1987). The project concerned patterns of cultural change and stability during the Holocene in the Chillagoe region of Northern Queensland and included an investigation of past foraging behaviour. When this research began very little was known of the prehistory of the region (see Campbell 1982, David 1984). Echidna's Rest was therefore excavated primarily to obtain information about the human antiquity and paleoenvironment of the region.
