‘In keeping with the spirit of Reconciliation, we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we are meeting today. We recognize indigenous people, their elders – past and present.’

Another collection of Aboriginal stone artefacts from the Violet Town district has surfaced. A previous post was about Aboriginal stone artefacts from just west of Violet Town; the artefacts shown here come from a little east of the town, in the catchment of the Honeysuckle Creek. They have been collected over the several decades, beginning in the 1950’s, and represent a considerable diversity of ‘tools’. Most were found during plowing, or other soil disturbances, but some were found on the ground surface. Also known from this farm are several ‘scar trees’ (not pictured). To our knowledge, this is the largest collection of stone artefacts from the northern edge of the Strathbogie Ranges.
