Abstract

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.
