    Australian Ground Stone Hatchets: Their Design and Dynamics
    (Australian Archaeological Association, 1976-11) Dickson, F P
    The general purpose tool of the Australian Aborigines, usually known as a stone axe, is more correctly termed a hatchet since it conforms to the design requirements of a tool made for one-handed use. Similar implements not so conforming appear to be special purpose tools. A geometrical feature common to all these tools and perhaps to other types is the 'median plane' which determines the position of the edge and governs some of its operational properties. Some dynamical features of stone hatchet heads, the design of handles for them and their security of mounting are examined and compared with the features of modern steel hatchets.

    The V.O.C. Ship 'Zeewijk' 1727. Report on the 1976 survey of the Site
    (Australian Archaeological Association, 1976-11) Ingelman-Sundberg, Catharine
    The Dutch East Indiaman 'Zeewijk', which foundered in 1727, is the youngest of five East Indiamen known to have been wrecked off the Western Australian coast. This paper deals with the different types of work carried out on the 'Zeewijk' site: the hydrographic survey, and the surveys and excavations both on land and underwater. It is hoped that the different techniques and methods used to overcome the problems involved might be of use to others working in similar situations.
