A workman at Barema oil palm plantation on New Britain Island in Papua New Guinea spots a large, black, shiny stone uncovered by a bulldozer cutting a terrace into a hill. The incident is reported to the boss man', and the news travels rapidly up the management chain to the Australian CEO. The CEO stopped all work at the building site immediately after the tool was found in order to wait for the author's assessment of its archaeological potential and for understanding these enigmatic artefacts. The author and his team felt lucky that he reluctantly lends it to us for a few hours to take measurements on the pXRF. The acceptance of Christian teachings has done much to diminish the importance of the local cultural heritage. The Australian CEO's distinctly Western view of the stemmed tool reminds the author of controversies about the repatriation of ancient remains, such as the Kennewick Man skeleton in North America.
