Archaeology of Australian Stone Tools – end of year test

On Monday 26th August, students in ARCH8517 The Archaeology of Australian Stone Tools completed their practical test.  The test involved identifying specific features on flaked stone tools, as well as recording 17 different attributes on a number of artefacts.  After everyone had finished, we celebrated the end of semester with drinks and snacks.  Above:  Vicky Baylem and Rani Attwood concentrate on their artefacts, not at all put off by Dr Alice Gorman hovering around them with a camera.
