I'm certain you have more specifics than I. I am trying to recall this
information from college courses taken over 5 yrs ago. I actually made
the speculation that New Zealand was populated at around the same time,
but, well, I got caught with my proverbial pants down. I am curious,
though about the earlier dates emerging concerning the populating of
Australia. Where were these people coming from? and what kind of evidence
are they uncovering?
