I acknowledge and pay my respects to Aboriginal elders, past and present, and the traditional owners of the lands on which these beautiful works of art are located.

I also thank their representatives for allowing access to the engraving sites, and I thank the organisations who help maintain and protect these sites, including:

Thanks are also due to these organisations, together with AIATSIS, the State Library of NSW, and the Mitchell Library for access to sites and information.

I thank John Clegg for his advice and for permission to use diagrams from Stanbury & Clegg.

I thank my son, Barnaby Norris, for injecting his expertise and time into the process of making high-quality photographic records of the engravings, and I thank my wife, Cilla Norris, and my daughter, Tamasin Norris, for their assistance with many of the field trips.
