Rock art research is central to answering some of the big questions about human migration.
Our scientific research program centres on understanding Australia’s rock art and the people and cultures that produced it. We conduct research to date the rock art, to reconstruct past climate and environments, to understand the context in which human beings have occupied and maintained their cultural traditions, and to map Australia’s earliest human footfall across the northern landscape.
Through such work we support conservation and protection of this precious heritage.
We collaborate with Indigenous and scientific communities, industry, business, government departments, and institutions involved with rock art research.
We acknowledge the multiple partners involved who make this research possible.
