The stone implements of Australia
The study of Australian stone implements has advanced steadily during the past twenty years. At present, however, the position has been reached in which there exist a certain amount of confusion regarding typology and nomenclature and a lack of knowledge among those interested, both here and abroad, of the full range of Australian implement types and their variations. This work is a systematic study intended to clarify these aspects of the subject as far as possible; in addition, the literature on each group of implements is given, and lines are indicated along which the study of Australian stone implements can be developed. The work is not a monograph embodying all known data about Australian stone implements; it is a summary catalogue in which the sources are given where such information is to be found.
