Abstract

Amongst the various and more or less well-defined types of Tasmanian stone implements which have been engaging the attention of students for some time past, there are two distinct and decidedly specialised forms which stand out conspicuously from all the others as having been fabricated for certain definite purposes. In the following notes they will be termed respectively Spokeshaves and Borees, and it is proposed with the help of two or three plates to give a short description of several series which are fairly representative of the types.
