“Dating Australia’s Rock Art”

Australia hosts the oldest ongoing culture in the world with aboriginal rock art providing an important window into what Australia’s first people were doing and the things that were important to them when it was created. However, to understand how these remarkable artworks might relate to things like changes in the climate and environment, we must know how old it is. This talk will discuss the different scientific techniques being used to date Australia’s oldest rock art and the importance of integrating traditional knowledges and western science.

Dr Green conducts research as part of the Kimberley Rock Art Dating Project. Her research has focused on analysing mineral accretions using a range of geochemical techniques to characterise and understand the formation processes occurring in relation to rock art pigments. She uses techniques include uranium-thorium dating, radiocarbon dating, stable isotope analysis along with analytical techniques such as X-ray diffraction analysis, scanning electron microscopy, and electron microprobe analysis.


Next talk: 6:30 Wednesday 21st September 2022  A/Prof Heather Mack AM  ”Injecting eyes with antibodies to treat problems of the retina.”

We are pleased to acknowledge the support by CSL for the ANZAAS Melbourne science talks series
