An integrated program of recording, significance assessment, archaeological and conservation analysis of the six Aboriginal art sites known to occur within the Namadgi National Park at that time.
Conducted in the initial years of the NOHC consultancy, this project was the first integrated assessment of the Namadgi Aboriginal rock art sites.
Historical review, comprehensive baseline recordings prepared using 1:1 hand tracing of art panels, motif analysis, and assessment of conservation and management strategies. Analysis of the rock art indicated an earlier and later phase of picture making, separated by a period of higher dew precipitation which may have occurred around 2500 years ago. The results of this project directed the subsequent management of the sites and later formed a baseline for the preparation of Plans of Management by the Namadgi Rock Art Working Group in 2008.
