Abstract

Since it was first identified (Tindale & Macgraith, 1931:281), the role of the horsehoof core in Australian stone tool technology has been the subject of differing interpretations. From examination of both archaeological and experimentally-replicated material, I present some observations and conclusions intended to further illuminate this question.
