Abstract

Preliminary results of a seven week intensive archaeological survey conducted on Edmeralda Station, Gulf of Carpentaria, are briefly discussed. Sites found include shelters with art and many open scatters of artefacts. A major surprise is the large number of sites containing a hight density of grinding surfaces, in particular (food ?) grinding patches.
