"The Tasmanian Aborigines are an extinct people. Moreover, they had no written language, so that our information about them is not only limited but comes either from the records of those others who were their contemporaries, or through the artefacts and material remains of the aborigines. Because of this, it is extremely important to understand clearly just what are the limitations of any line of research, so that the maximum information can be obtained."
