Yum!

I saw a bit of whale humerus today that I was told was collected from a prehistoric midden somewhere on the NSW coast- I wonder if any ancient Aboriginal cultures developed methods for harvesting the impressive food source passing so close to shore, or if it was an adventitious find...

This is what I did read in "the Fatal Shore". The only Tasmanian aboriginal bloodlines left are descendants of those kidnapped for their knowledge of whale migrations back in the days when whale oil was considered sustainable. I inferred that at least in Tasmania, it was a food source with specialist traditional knowledge.

This has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with whales or veal, but i thought you would both be interested in this:
