Abstract

This paper was commenced by the late W. W. Thorpe shortly before his untimely death. It contains a description of two unusual types of ground stone implements of the Australian aborigines, in the collection of the Australian Museum, and also in the possession of members of the Anthropological Society of New South Wales, to whom thanks are due for the loan of the specimens. The petrological determinations by Mr. T. Hodge-Smith, Mineralogist, Australian Museum, are based on megascopic characters only.
