Further radiocarbon dates from Dabangay, a mid- to late Holocene settlement site in western Torres Strait
Dabangay , on the island of Mabuyag, is one of only two known mid-Holocene sites in Torres Strait. Eleven new radiocarbon dates, combined with nine previous determinations, clarify its site formation processes and settlement history. The sequence shows two sustained settlement periods between 7239-3211 cal. BP and 1815 cal. BP-present, with little evidence for use during the intervening period. This differs from Badu 15, approximately 15 km south of Mabuyag, where human activity became sporadic...[Show more]
