Abstract (in English)

Aboriginal occupation of Australia is known to date back at least 40.000 years. Aboriginal culture was isolated from other cultural developments during most of that time until European settlement just 200 years ago. Physical evidence of the past may consist of simple scatters of stone artefacts, elaborate fish-traps, ceremonial stone circles or simple huts. Rock-art is considered amongst the finest in the world. such sites are found throughout Australia are variously protected under federal and state legislation. Many sites are now the focus of increasing visitation.
