The cards compiled in this box relate to Tindale's concern with using vocabulary to map distributional patterns of cultural and natural phenomena across Australia.There are a number of sections, with header cards reading: Stone Impl.; Implements General; Adzes Chisels; Axe; Axe-kodj type; Bone Imp.; Chisel & Adze, chipped ones; Chisel, edge ground adzes; Digging Sticks; Fire Makers; Grub Hooks; Knife; Millstones & Hammer Stones; Sharpening Stones; Spade or Shovel for grub digging; Stone, throwing 'mara'. Cards are mostly drawn from literature sources, but some are from Tindale's manuscript materials. Note that cards occasionally contain notes on the manufacture and use of implements, including illustrations and samples of chisel stone.
