The 1950s, era of the first radiocarbon revolution, saw famous clashes between confidence in the old chronologies and the new results from radiocarbon, which sometimes appeared ‘archaeologically unacceptable’.The same issues continue in respect of the radiocarbon dating of rock art, where the sheer technical difficulty of securing a dating number in which one can have confidence, remains a large real obstacle.In Western Australia and Northern Territory that honour belongs to "cupule art" - that is, deeply weathered cup-shaped hollows called cupules - followed by a tradition of cave painting featuring mainly animal pictures, along with some handprints and hand stencils, as well as abstract signs and other crude geometric symbols.(For instance, in 2008, a picture of a Thylacoleo - a fierce "marsupial lion" that lived in Australia until it became extinct about 44,000 BCE - was discovered on the north-west coast of the Kimberley, suggesting that the painting must have been created during the early Upper Paleolithic.) All these types of ancient art are believed to predate the Last Glacial Maximum (c.24,000-18,000 BCE).However, as with Burrup Peninsula rock art in the Pilbara, and Ubirr rock art in Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land, only a tiny fraction of Kimberley's rock art has been examined and dated, so it is impossible to say whether it begins in the era of Upper Paleolithic art (40,000-10,000 BCE), or Mesolithic Art (about 10,000-6,000 BCE) or Neolithic Art (about 6,000-2,000 BCE).
