The excavations reported here were carried out in 1964-5 when I was a Research Scho ar in the prehistory section of the Department of Anthropology and Sociology, The Australian National University. They were presented, with other material, as a PhD dissertation in 1967. For reasons of economy some of the more detailed descriptions of artifacts and minutiae of excavation and analytical procedures have been omitted from this report, but I have tried to give sufficient information to allow other workers to reanalyse the material if desired . There are some minor differences between the data presented here and those given in the thesis and published elsewhere. They arise from a thorough rechecking of all notes and calculations prior to publication, so that this should be the most accurate account of the excavation available . Errors doubtless remain, for which I alone am responsible. All the material is now housed in The Australian Museum, Sydney.
