Description

Research notes

Dec 1998 - The attribution of boomerang 240 to 'Australia - L' (north east of South Australia, or south west of Queensland) was made based on the presence of 'nipples', carving, and the fact it is light and thin.

The Foundation Donation comprises the items from L. P. Winterbotham's personal collection, which were donated to the University of Queensland in 1948 and form the basis of the Anthropology Museum.
