australian archaeology The custom of carving trees was culture practiced by the aborigines of parts of New South Wales. Trees treated in this way became known as dendroglyphs. These are again subdivided into two classes: taphoglyphs and teleteglyphs. Taloglyphs include all trees found at burial grounds. Teleteglyphs were those used at bora grounds where all kinds of ceremonies were carried out.
