AbstractThis thesis addresses the archaeological site patterns of the South Alligator River area, which is a review and addition to previous surveys conducted by researchers from the Australian National University, and the Mary River wetlands, which has been previously unstudied. The archaeological site patterns of the South Alligator River and the Mary River wetlands differ in many respects. Although the ecology of both areas is similar there are some broad differences in site size, site artefact density and artefact assemblage composition. These differences may arise from a number of factors due to the availability of raw material resources and the utilisation of certain food resources of the wetlands in the Northern Territory.
