Formatted abstract
This thesis presents the results of a preliminary archaeological investigation of shell mound at Booral, a coastal site in the Great Sandy Strait Region. Evidence of fish remains in this site dating back to 3000 b.p. has led to a revision of a model posited by Walters (1987,1989) which advocated the establishment· of a fishery in the Moreton Region after 2000 b.p. The active procurement of fish by at least 3000 b.p. in southeast Queensland suggests that perhaps people have been maritime hunter-gathers for much longer than was previously though. Although the use of centain coastal sites may have been influenced by environmental dynamics such as sea level fluctuation, it is likely that these sites were utilised by a people who were preadapted to coastal living.
