Abstract

In 1951 Mr. J. Norcross reported to the Australian Museum several rock shelters containing stencils that he had inspected in the Capertee Valley, near Glen Davis. His attention was drawn to them by local residents, particularly W. Ferguson (store-keeper), to whom they had been known for some 50 years. At my request, Mr. Norcross dug a test hole in the floor of two sites, 1 and 3 in this paper, which produced Bondi points and waste flakes. In 1954 Mr. J. Bland, of Sunny Corner, further examined the sites at my request, and test holes dug by him yielded Bondaian culture implements and patinated yellow flakes not known elsewhere. Excavations of the sites were undertaken in 1958.

The following were members of the excavating parties during university vacations for periods of from 7 to 10 days:- December, 1958: Professor N. W. G. Macintosh, Department of Anatomy, University of Sydney; Mr. D. Currie, of Imperial Chemical Industries, Sydney; Mr. J. Bland, farmer, Sunny Corner; Mr. V. Rose, Fruit Inspector, Bathurst; Mr. P. Gresser, retired, Bathurst; and Mr. W. Coombes, medical student, University of Sydney.
