Formatted abstract

This thesis postulates a model for colonisation, settlement and subsistence in Moreton Island prehistory. Excavation conducted at Toulkerrie, on the Island's southwest coast, aims to demonstrate subsistence, and spatial distribution of people as well as the antiquity of colonisation of Moreton Island. Several theoretical models drawing respectively from schools of Environmental Determinism, Technological Determinism and Socio-economic Determinism are posited to hypothesise process and impetus of colonisation of the Island.
