Archaeological evidence for environmental change in Darwin Harbour
Chronological change in the coastal environment of Darwin Harbour, Northern Territory, is documentd by archaeological sites. Molluscs gathered by prehistoric people for food between 1,400 ad about 900 years ago reveal that humans were foraging along largely open beaches. The dense and continuous mangrove forests found in the harbour today have formed in the last 1,000 years.
