This thesis presents a detailed analysis of chronological change in intensity of site use at Seal Point. The site is a late Holocene coastal shell midden from Cape Otway, Victoria. Intensity of site use is assessed through a technological analysis of the stone assemblage. Results indicate that intensity of site use was lowest during initial occupation of the site at 1400 B.P., reached a maximum from 450 B.P., and decreased between 300 B.P and 150 B.P. These results have implications for previous interpretations of Seal Point, the prehistory of Cape Otway and the “intensification” issue.
