Well written and a comprehensive resource into Aboriginal stone tools.
Well written and a comprehensive resource into Aboriginal stone tools. After much searching finding relevant information is difficult to obtain on this subject. This book offered all there is to know to date on the subject of napping techniques, stones types and various historical and geographical references to assist with ID and the practical uses of such tools. If I had any suggestions it would be for more photos and a chapter on grinding stones / mullers that are prevalent in locations that such tools referenced are usually associated.

One of the best books on the market for Australian stone tool identification. The descriptions and illustrations are excellent and very helpful. The cd is a plus. It is essential for any student or field archaeologist.
