This is an article about Aboriginal shell middens along the Queensland coast and the information they provide about Aboriginal food collection practices. Written by Kudjala/Kalkadoon Elder from Queensland Letitia Murgha and intended mainly for teachers, it describes how shell middens were created over thousands of years and lists some of the species of mussels, oysters, clams, crabs and fish whose shells or bones have been found in the middens. The article mentions that fish traps are associated with middens at several sites. It is illustrated by images of a shell necklace and of shell middens on the beach of Palm Island.
