Indigenous artefacts found at Sydney light rail site

THERE are calls for construction to stop on a section of Sydney's new south-east light rail line after tens of thousands of Indigenous artefacts were discovered there.

About 20,000 artefacts were found over a 100-metre-square area around the line's proposed tram stabling yard on the corner of Alison Road and Doncaster Road in Randwick.

Darug Elder Uncle Des Dyer visited the site and said the artefacts included spear heads and cutting tools, some of which appeared to show trade and contact with Indigenous people in the Hunter Valley.

"Each area has its own stones," Mr Dyer told 702 ABC Sydney.

"And on our song-lines one group would come down to us and they'd bring their stones and tools with them to swap and we'd give them ours and they'd take it back to wherever they came from."
