Summary
Presents a typological analysis of stone artefacts collected by A.L. Meston from Tasmania; investigates whether stylistic provinces can be seen in surface collections of stone artefacts from two tribal regions within Tasmania; tests the usefulness of Rhys Jones' stone artefact typology for northern Tasmania and its application for wider Tasmania; comparative analysis of Meston Collection with Jones' Rocky Cape Collection; assessment of pebble tools as an additional implement type; comparison of Tasmanian pebble tools with those from the site of Curracurrang (NSW); differentiation in the Meston Collection from the North and the Oyster Bay tribes as it relates to the tribal regions within Tasmania; biography of A.L. Meston; history of the Meston Collection; collection methods; environmental information for Tasmania; reviews literature concerning Tasmanian Aborigines prior to European settlement - use of Robinson's journals and the work of Jones, Hiatt, and Ryan; seasonal movements of the North and the Oyster Bay tribes; reviews archaeological research (stone artefact research) in Tasmania - Jones, Lourandos, Bowdler; pebble tool typologies - Kartan industry and Nishimura's classification of the Hoabinhian pebble tools
