Abstract

All of the papers in this volume are based on papers, session overviews and posters presented at the 1995 Australian Archaeological Association (AAA) Annual Conference. The Conference was held at the Gatton College campus of the University of Queensland from 6-9 December 1995.

The Conference was hosted by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit at the University of Queensland in collaboration with the Department of Anthropology and Sociology and the University of Queensland Archaeological Services Unit (UQASU). It was one of the longest AAA conferences ever – enduring over a tiring four days. It was also one of the largest conferences on record with over 200 registered participants. In total, over 85 formal presentations were made at the Conference, including 49 papers of which 27 papers appear in this volume.

These Proceedings depart in several major ways from its predecessors. First, all of the papers in this volume were presented in some form at the Conference; no other contributions are included. Second, the full range of issues covered at the Conference are represented in the volume rather than it being restricted to a single session topic or theme. Third, all papers were refereed (except for session overviews and the final section on 'Repatriation Issues in Australian Archaeology'). Finally, with the exception of Davidson et al. (1995), we believe that this is the first time that presenters in the Poster Session have been invited to contribute to the general AAA Conference Proceedings.

Some authors have chosen to submit essentially what was presented at the Conference while others have substantially rewritten contributions in light of comment and discussion at the Conference and at the suggestion of referees and the editors.

The work of the 44 contributors represented in this volume provides an up-to-date overview of the diverse interests of contemporary Australian archaeologists and Australian archaeology ’95.
