The Rock Art Dating project is led by Prof Andrew Gleadow with a substantial group of collaborating researchers from the Universities of Melbourne, Wollongong, Western Australia and ANSTO, and is supported by the Australian Research Council and KFA. It includes a multi-disciplinary approach that enables multiple dating strategies to be explored in parallel. The project is now in its third year of a three year term.
Progress has been substantial on all fronts. This includes characterisation of mineral accretions, development of uranium-series methods, characterisation and radiocarbon dating of mud wasp nest constituents, geomicrobiology and cosmogenic radionuclide dating.
