Abstract The Darwin coastal region is a relatively neglected area in terms of archaeological research. This project seeks to amend the neglect through archaeological investigation of open sites located in the region. These sites are mostly Anadara shell middens and mounds, but earth mounds, and artefact scatters containing large heavy stone artefacts such as edge-ground axes, pestles and portable grinding stones (mortars), also occur. An Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) Research Grant was used to fund the fieldwork component of this project, which forms the basis of a PhD in Anthropology at the Northern Territory University in Darwin. This report describes the results of fieldwork carried out over the dry season of 1996.
