Summary
Archaeological analysis of artificially constructed earth mounds, fish trap systems and village sites in the Caramut, Bessiebelle and Mount William areas, focussing on an assessment of function and location; includes site documentation, survey and excavation results, soil property data (geochemical and magnetic sampling), stratigraphy, artefact assemblages and distribution, intraand inter-site variability and dating combined with a geographic assessment; of land form, geology, hydrology and climate; also includes a review of historic and ethnographic accounts for the purpose of establishing subsistence and settlement patterns, group organisation and population; implications for theories of change, intensification, environmental shift and demographic pressure; Appendices include raw data on spoil properties, stone artefacts and mounds
