Introduction*

In March 1995, the discovery of a digging stick was reported to the Heritage Section of the ACT Department of Environment Land and Planning. Apart from the notable finds preserved in the Wyrie Swamp (Luebbers 1978:130–131), wooden artefacts are rarely found in situ in southeastern Australia. The site discussed in this report is therefore significant under Schedule 2(v) of the ACT Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991 as a place which is the only known example of its kind in the ACT.

*Note that an abstract was not included with this paper, and so the introductory paragraph has been included here instead of the abstract.
