|Title:||Australian Aboriginal biface reduction techniques on the Georgina River, Camooweal, Queensland||Contributor(s):||Moore, Mark (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1696||Abstract:||A technological analysis was recently completed on a collection of stone artefacts recovered during bridge construction at Camooweal, northwest Queensland. The results indicate that various bifacial reduction techniques were an integral part of the Aboriginal stone-working repertoire. A sophisticated knowledge of biface flaking and a multi-staged approach to manufacture is suggested by large hand axe-like bifaces and small bifacial points. The reduction techniques used in manufacturing these bifaces were also used on other elements in the stone toolkit.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Archaeology, v.56, p. 22-34||Publisher:||Australian Archaeological Association Inc||Place of Publication:||Adelaide, Australia||ISSN:||0312-2417||Field of Research (FOR):||210104 Archaeology of Australia (excl Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.australianarchaeologicalassociation.com.au/australian_archaeology
