Abstract

As the Aborigines of Tasmania called their stone
implements "tronatta," I think it advisable to use this
word in preference to all others When speaking of them.
"Tronatta" means a stone implement manufactured by
the Tasmanian Aborigines, and it does not bear on the
vexed question whether we have to consider these
amorpholitic implements as eolithes or as archaeolithes.
The tronatta
represents the typical archaeolithic stage in the evolution
of the stone implements, somewhat modified by a
considerable admixture of implements of eolithic character.
Specimens sourced from various places such as: Mona vale, Melton Mowbray, and Old Beach.
