1934 - ABORIGINAL RELICS. FORBES, Sunday. - An interesting aboriginal relic has been discovered in the Forbes district. A laige grinding stone has been located on Glenmore, the property of Mr. T. Looney, about half a mile north of Mount Raleigh. The stone measures five feet by three and a half feet, and is well grooved where spears of various types have been pointed. A wider groove shows when the tomahawks were sharpened.

TUMUT, Saturday. Tumut Shire road maintenance men, whilst working at the foot of Bullock Hill, Kiandra, unearthed at a depth of 20 inches, in very hard ground, two aboriginal tomahawks and a sharpening stone, considered to be at least 200 years old. They are the best specimen yet seen here. - (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Monday 12 February 1934).
