Summary
Comments on section of paper by Gould, Koster and Sontz The Lithic Assemblage of the Western Desert Aborigines of Australia; Disagree that terminated plate scars and absence of patina on adze edges are diagnostic of woodworking usage; Find definition of terminated imprecise; Woodworking adzes from Cundeelee and Papunya show wider range of fractures and fewer overall fractures; Patina & striations found on adzes working soft, but not hard, woods; Terminated flake scars can result from overall usage; Glossary; fracture classification; Part 2; reply by Gould; Use-wear on Western Desert Aborigines, a reply to Messrs. Hayden and Kamminga; Agrees terminology imprecise; suggest lithic tradition described by Hayden and Koster may differ from this in Warburton Mission area, where no soft woodworking observed, thus no patina or striations; Use-wear only one of many characteristics of W. Desert adzes; agrees some fractured types result of general usage, but found with other attributes may indicate wood working
