A Record in Stone is a comprehensive investigation into the different ways in which archaeologists use flaked stone artefacts as a basis for reconstructing the distant human past. The authors not only describe the range of flaked stone artefact forms recovered from Australian archaeological sites, but also place Australian studies alongside the major international theories surrounding the description of stone artefacts. Includes over 130 black and white labelled images of actual artefacts and an accompanying CD-ROM featuring more than 450 colour images of artefacts.
