Notes A large, double-ended rockshelter in Jawoyn country with extensive rock art. Preliminiary investigations of two 50 x 50 cm test pits reached depths of c. 70 cm. Five stratigraphic units were identified with basal dates back to c. 42 ka. Evidence suggests a hiatus through the LGM (c. 30 - 18 ka). Charcoal and flaked stone were found in every excavation unit. Bone was recovered from only the Holocene deposits. A large ochre crayon recovered from the test pit was dated to between 14-21 ka, and was identified as potentially being related to the some of the rock art surfaces.
