They also unearthed the earliest known examples of edge-ground axes, which are stone axes that would have had handles, which were 20,000 years older than those found anywhere else in the world. Clarkson said that the finding provides further insight into the complex capabilities of ancient humans as well as the chronology of when they migrated from Africa and spread across the world.
He also added that the findings provide evidence against a prevailing theory that people rapidly drove Australia’s largest animals to extinction shortly after arriving on the continent.“It puts to bed the whole idea that humans wiped them out,” said Dr. “We’re talking 20,000 to 25,000 years of coexistence.”To determine the age of the artifacts, the team had to date the sediment layer where they were buried.
“This is indeed a marvelous step forward in our exploration of the human past in Australia.”Previous archaeological digs and dating had suggested people migrated to Australia between 47,000 and 60,000 years ago.
But a new excavation at an aboriginal rock shelter called Madjedbebe revealed human relics that dated back 65,000 years.“We were gobsmacked by the richness of material that we were finding at the site: fireplaces intact, a ring of grind stones around it, and there were human burials in their graves,” said Chris Clarkson, an archaeologist from the University of Queensland in Australia and lead author of the study.
"The British were armed to the teeth and from the moment they stepped foot on our country, the slaughter and dispossession of Aborigines began." Aboriginal people call it 'Invasion Day', 'Day of Mourning', 'Survival Day' or, since 2006, 'Aboriginal Sovereignty Day'.
Now, researchers have found evidence that suggests the ancestors of Aboriginal Australians landed in the northern part of Australia at least 65,000 years ago.If researchers can recover the grain of sand, and keep it dark, they can then use a laser to release the ‘charge’ within it.By measuring the amount of energy the grain of sand releases, and comparing that with the amount of radiation that the sand was exposed to while it was buried, researchers can determine when it was last in sunlight."Australia Day is 26 January, a date whose only significance is to mark the coming to Australia of the white people in 1788.It's not a date that is particularly pleasing for Aborigines," says Aboriginal activist Michael Mansell .
