Introduction*

A rare implement with an intact resin haft was recovered from the upper levels of the deposit from Amngu Rockshelter during excavations in 1996. Arnngu is a sandstone shelter on the edge of a large floodout plain on the middle Palmer River. The hafted implement overlies a modem date from the middle of the deposit (Beta-1 06998) and a basal date of 1420±100 (Beta-96376) near bedrock.

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