A multidisciplinary approach to the study of stone tool economics and trade routes in the Brunswick River Valley, NSW

Description

All Raw Materials Varieties

Research examines both coastal and upland archaeological sites, stone raw material procurement and artefact typology in the Tweed and Byron Shires of northern New South Wales (NSW). Potential stone resource sites and quarries beyond these boundaries are included in the research to allow questions about raw material procurement and distance to source materials to be resolved.
