Abstract

A preliminary account of this subject appeared in the Curator's Report for 1900.The report reads as follows "A very remarkable discovery was made by Mr. T. Whitelegge in the early part of the year, along the local sea-board. A series of heavy gales displaced the sand hummocks at Bondi and Maroubra Bays, Dee Why Lagoon, etc., exposing what appeared to be an old land ,surface. On the latter Mr. Whitelegge found revealed, what we had never before imagined to exist, a series of aboriginal 'workshops' where for generations the blacks of the Port Jackson District must have manufactured chips, splinters and points for insertion along thc distal margins of their spears and for other purposes."
