- Hi Tim I was just reading about Kuk and it reminded me of an interesting thing we found in new guinea in the 1960. I grew up in the highlands, my father was Aub Schindler the agriculturist at Aiyura experiment station. He left his research position in 1960 and owned a coffee plantation 'Karanka'. We found a number of granite utensils that were uncovered on the airstrip site. They were bowls and pestles. The locals at the time told us they were from the 'people before'. It maybe that others already have studied these things. How sad we are not there as there was one of these bowls were used as a water bowl for the animals.
- I would like to mention that I have treated a horse that was swimming upstream of the Mt Crosby weir, that had shark bite wounds on it. Be careful they are happily living in the freash water.
