Abstract

Karremarter is a small limestone shelter in the Lower South-East of South Australia that was used from the mid-Holocene onward. This paper presents a characterization of the typological and technological attributes of the chipped stone artefacts recovered from this shelter. This provides the basis for assessing the relationship between access to and selection of raw materials, tool-making strategies and the spatial and temporal availability of subsistence resources.
