Core Artefact Research
Richard Fullagar is involved with research projects that are growing out of fieldwork by Scarp Archaeology in the Pilbara, WA and the Hunter Valley (NSW). Richardís research base is in the Centre for Archaeological Science (CAS) at the University of Wollongong, where he is studying the artefacts in the CAS Microscope Laboratory.
Grinding stones from the Pilbara
Scarp Archaeology is investigating Aboriginal archaeological sites and undertaking further research on the stone artefact assemblages to document the function of stone artefacts. Currently he is working on surface sites and excavated assemblages from the Pilbara. One his objectives is to build a grinding stone database accessible to other researchers. The first database should be available on the AACAI website by the end of 2012.
