The scope of the Chair will encompass the development and application of scientific methods to the study of Indigenous heritage in Australia and archaeological research more broadly, including an initial focus on understanding rock art and its environmental and archaeological context in the Kimberley region of northwestern Australia. The Chair is expected to collaborate closely with other groups within the university and elsewhere in Australia who are working on related research areas, especially in Western Australia.
