Abstract

The 445 implements dealt with in this study are from aboriginal workshops at Point Plomer, Tacking Point beach, Dark Point, Anna Bay and Morna Point, on the lower north coast of New South Wales. Some of the specimens from Dark Point, Anna Bay and Morna Point were collected by the late W. W. Thorpe, and the others by the Rev. A. J. Barrett, Miss Lesley Hall and the author, while those from Point Plomer were collected during a week that I spent in the district in April, 1945. In addition, Mr. H. J. Wright, of Sydney, has kindly made available a considerable number of specimens in his collection from the three first-mentioned localities. The implements analysed comprise trimmed coroids, nuclei, blocks, worimi and karta slices, uniface pebbles, edge-ground axes, and a few normal flake and blade implements, including elouera and bondi points. This is the fifth paper of a series of analyses of sites in New South Wales from which reasonably complete collections are available.
