Description :
The AA. propose a framework for the study of surface archaeological deposits in which geomorphic processes in the past that have influenced human behaviour are just as important to understanding the archaeological record as the post- deposition processes that have shaped the record. They illustrate this proposition by describing and analysing the consequences for the surface archaeological record of a single high magnitude rainfall event that occurred in New South Wales. Then, they consider how this event help to interpret the chronology of human occupation in the study region since the mid-Holocene.
