The results of recent excavations in two rockshelters in the Hamersley Range
, presented here by Slack, Fillios and Fullagar, provide new data for ongoing discussions about patterns of residential mobility by Pilbara populations during the Last Glacial Maximum.

As would be expected, extensive trade networks occurred across the Hamersley Range
and into the Western Desert, and ethnographic evidence suggests the trading of artefacts and ceremonies inland from the coast.
Despite 20 years of intensive archaeological work (mostly consulting projects including over 50 excavations with more than 100 radiocarbon dates, see Slack 2008), this antiquity has only recently been surpassed with age estimates for excavations at Djadjiling at Hope Downs in the eastern Hamersley Range
, indicating possible occupation of at least 35,159 [+ or -] 537 years BP (Morse, this issue, Table 1).
Data from excavations throughout the Hamersley Range
(inland Pilbara) point to the introduction of such in the early second millennium BC.
