Jones, Tristen; Levchenko, Vladimir; King, Penelope; Troitzsch, Ulrike; Wesley, Daryl; Williams, A Alan; Nayingull, Alfred


In this article we present nine radiocarbon age determinations producing a minimum age and a minimum age range for a regionally distinct rock art style known as the Northern Running Figures from Red Lily Lagoon, western Arnhem Land Australia. These radiocarbon determinations provide age constraints for both Pleistocene and early Holocene rock art in western Arnhem Land. The radiocarbon age determinations are produced from extracting calcium oxalate contained within mineral crusts associated...[Show more]
