Summary

The genesis for this study came out of the industrial development of the Burrup Peninsula, once one of the 42 islands of the Dampier Archipelago, located on the Pilbara region’s coast of Western Australia.

One of the major rock art provinces in Australia, the Dampier Archipelago arguably comprises the highest concentration of petroglyphs in the world.

Ownership of the rock art lies with the local Aboriginal people - its custodianship is held by Yaburara descendants and Ngarluma people.

Murujuga Marni—The Rock Art of the Macropod Hunters and the Mollusc Harvesters presents a model of the artistic traditions and the associated petroglyph production, suggesting five major phases for the Dampier Archipelago and providing insights into a world that existed for Aboriginal Australians over many thousands of years.
