A brief history of Macquarie Island is outlined with particular note of the different types of sites and sealing equipment used. Their spatial relationships and the evidence for technological change are viewed in the light of this historical evidence. The results of a small excavation challenge the historically derived view that living quarters were continuously repaired and / or re-used. Problems in the management of these resources are outlined.
