ItemAboriginal Adze Stone Hoards Found on the Arcoona Plateau Near Woomera, South Australia(Australian Archaeological Association, 1976-04) Hewitt, RIn October 1970, the Woomera Natural History Society held a field excursion to the Lake Hanson area. The purpose of this paper is to provide details of a hoard or cache of Aboriginal adze stones found by the writer on that occasion. This paper will also describe two smaller finds of hoarded adze stones, made in other parts of the region in recent years. ItemArchaeological Field Work in South-Western Victoria, 1974/1975(Australian Archaeological Association, 1976-04) Lourandos, HarryMost models of Australian Aboriginal societies are based on studies in either tropical or arid environments. As a contrast to these I have chosen to examine the human ecology of Aboriginal societies that existed in the well-watered regions of south-eastern Australia. The study area chosen was the Western District of south-western Victoria. The research design includes the examination of two bodies of data, ethnographic and archaeological, viewed in relation to the region's ecology. Attention has been placed on the construction of models of subsistence and settlement.
