Abstract

Several studies, both anthropological and archaeological, have drawn attention to the broader social, economic, and political implications of Aboriginal ceremonial activities, as well as highlighted the role of ceremonial involvement as a mechanism of change in Aboriginal Australia (e.g., Altman 1983, 1987; Barker 1976; Bern 1979; Hamilton 1980; Lourandos 1980, 1983, 1985; Myers 1980a, 1980b; Satterthwait 1987; Thomson 1949). The difficulty from an archaeological perspective is to locate demonstrable evidence of these activities.
