|Title:||The Tula Adze: Manufacture and Purpose||Contributor(s):||Moore, Mark (author)||Publication Date:||2004||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/65||Abstract:||Toolmakers in Queensland Australia used ingenious knapping techniques to produce an implement with a large bulb of percussion and a gouge-shaped cutting edge: the "gull-wing tula adze". The author concludes that the tool results from a unique compromise between an inefficient knapping technique and a peculiar - but in this case desirable -phenomenon of fracture mechanics.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Antiquity, 78(299), p. 61-73||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Place of Publication:||Kings Manor, United Kingdom||ISSN:||0003-598X||Field of Research (FOR):||210101 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Archaeology||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.antiquity.cc/index.html||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 77
