Formatted abstract

The topic of this thesis is the life style of the Aboriginal people who once lived around the headwaters of the Nogoa River, Central Highlands, Queensland. For purposes of identif ication, partly influenced by geomorphological features, the area has been defined as the Nogoa Basin.

The fieldwork on which part of this survey is based, was decided upon following a brief visit in May 1976 when the presence of data available in the field was confirmed. This study takes the form of a site survey and will include information on:

European settlement
Ethno-historical accounts
Archaeology - Art sites, Occupation sites, Tools and Artifacts

and ethnographic data gathered in the form of reminiscences from Aboriginal and European informants.

All maps and grid references quoted refer to 1:250,000 series compiled by Division of National Mapping, Surveyor Generals Department. Maps number SF.55-15; SG.55-2; SG.55-3 have been used.

Photographs taken during the field work are now kept in the photographic collection held at the Department of Aboriginal and Islanders Advancement, Brisbane.
