A small, modified flake tool manufactured from telegraph insulator material was located along the north western coast of Kangaroo Island, at a place known as Harvey’s Return. The tool was hafted and has been well used during its active life and its working edge is illustrated in Figure 1. Residue analysis indicates a thick coating of resin, which cannot be specifically identified although spinifex and xanthorrea can be excluded (Loy 2002).
