    ANU Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory, General Projects
    (Australian Archaeological Association, 1975-04) Jones, Rhys; Polach, H A
    The laboratory is playing an important role in a number of research projects. Indeed, there is a continuing and increasing need for laboratory generated research involving improvements in dating techniques, analysis, interpretation and reporting of results; parameters fundamental to the validity of dating such as environmental contamination and selection of applicable dating standards. Equally important is participation on a cooperative basis in research generated by other departments and institutions, often involving field work.

    Archaeologists and Aborigines
    (Australian Archaeological Association, 1975-04) Stockton, Eugene

    Archaeologists and Aborigines
    (Australian Archaeological Association, 1975-04) Moore, David R
    Aboriginal hostility to archaeological work in Australia seem to be due mainly to lack of public understanding of what archaeology is all about. For this archaeologists themselves are chiefly to blame, because of their general disinclination or inability to communicate in a popular way

    Archaeology in a changing society
    (Australian Archaeological Association, 1975-04) Golson, Jack

The discipline however is a product of the intellectual movement in 19th century Europe and followed the flag of European imperalism into every quarter of the globe. Reaction against colonialism in the present century has meant restriction on the practice of the academic pursuits associated with it.
