Abstract:

Jones speaks of his Welsh upbringing, his persistent interest in the relationship between geography and history, especially historical monuments, his father a physicist died in 1954, reading accounts of early Australian exploration, his education in Wales, how his essay on his work on an archaeological dig at Sant Anish got him a Cambridge science scholarship, his love of field work, how Grahame Clark encouraged him to specialise in archaeology, the emphasis on a global approach to prehistory and advances in dating methods, how he learnt field research methods in Europe and the Middle East by age 22, he became a product of the Cambridge quaternary tradition as opposed to the U.S. school of archaeology.

He then talks about how he got a teaching position at University of Sydney in Sept. 1963, the significance in shell middens at Sister's Creek and West Point revealing evidence that suggests Pleistocene Tasmania is the source of Aboriginal mainland culture, the political sensitivity of many digs, the problems in interpreting and dating these stratifications, the advent of carbon dating in 1966 confirming their previous estimates, the problem with sites providing too much information prior to the advent of computers, the discovery of the Sealed Cave in 1967 and dated as 6,000 years old, the discovery of Pleistocene remains dating 18,000 years ago by Sandra Bowdler at Cave Bay Cave in 1973/74.
