Abstract

Through the courtesy of Messrs. Roy Mackenzie and Rex Burns, residents of Mangrove Mountain, some twenty miles west of Gosford, New South Wales, the writer was enabled to dig up, or acquire by gift, several rectangular hammers or pounders, invariably of basalt, of a type hitherto undescribed. The writer was already acquainted with this type of implement, there being several examples already in the Museum cabinets, but of which little was known.

The Trustees possess two from Bulga, Singleton district, New South Wales (registered numbers, E.24709 and E.26035), one from a rock shelter on Wyong Creek, New South Wales (E.11247), and another, not otherwise included, from Mangrove Mountain (E.33473). To these may be added some seven specimens from the collection of the late R. H. Mathews (E.25660–66)....
