Research notes

"Isis centenary. Ferdinant von Mueller stamp. This is part of the rock formation carrying the carvings or chippings" [catalogue card note]. Presumably part of the Burnett river engraving site which was salvage excavated by the Dept of Aboriginal and Islander Affairs in the 1970's prior to the area being inundated by a dam. Some rocks with engravings were brought in trust to the University of Queensland, and were subject to repatriation claims in the 1990s. Altogether there are 8 photos of this site [31589 to 31596] in this series.
