Hi folks,
I heard a tiny snippet on the news that some archaeologists are claiming
to have found artefacts/art? in Northern Australia dating back well over
100 000 BP. If this is true it would cause a major upset to current
theories about the evolution and spread of modern humans. Is anyone out
there able to fill me in on the details of this find, and whether it is
to be taken seriously?
