Abstract

All of the papers in this volume are based on papers and posters presented at the 2001 Australian Archaeological Association Annual Conference, convened by the editors of this volume. The conference was held from 6-8 December at Kondari Resort in Hervey Bay, approximately 300km north of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. Sponsored by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit and School of Social Science at the University of Queensland, it was one of the largest Australian Archaeological Association conferences on record.

The conference aimed to provide a forum for the exploration of barriers, borders and boundaries in Australian archaeological methods and practice, frameworks of interpretation and epistemological structures. Sessions were designed to have broad appeal to a range of archaeological stakeholders including academics, consultants, Indigenous peoples, students, cultural heritage managers and policy formulators.

The structure of this volume does not reflect closely the conference session structure. Instead, we have reorganised papers into four broad thematic areas to provide some coherence to the work. The first section, 'Recent Regional Research', presents broad regional studies covering a wide time period and geographical range. The section on 'Rock Art Studies' explores the use of art to define social boundaries, as well as problems in approaches, and challenges for management. The third section, 'Archaeological and Aboriginal Heritage' deals with the way archaeologists undertake research, form partnerships with stakeholders and train future archaeologists. The final section, 'Technical Studies', highlights approaches to the study of archaeological remains and sites, using a range of technical, genetic and molecular methods. In all, they cover a wide range of the challenges, solutions and valuable information provided by the barriers, borders and boundaries in current archaeology.
