Aboriginal archaeological discovery in Kakadu rewrites the history of Australia

http://www.smh.com.au/technology/sci-tech/aboriginal-archaeological-discovery-in-kakadu-rewrites-the-history-of-australia-20170719-gxe3qy.html

Aboriginal people have lived in Australia for a minimum of 65,000 years, a team of archaeologists has established – 18,000 years longer than had been proved previously and at least 5000 years longer than had been speculated by the most optimistic researchers.

The world-first finding, which follows years of archaeological digging in an ancient camp-site beneath a sandstone rock shelter within the Jabiluka mining lease in Kakadu, Northern Territory, drastically alters the known history of the trek out of Africa by modern humans, according to the leader of the international team of archaeologists, associate professor Chris Clarkson of the University of Queensland.

The findings, which are already causing intense interest in archaeological circles across the world, have been peer reviewed by internationally recognised scientists and are published this week in the world’s most prestigious science journal, Nature.

Among the trove of discoveries are the world’s oldest stone axes with polished and sharpened edges, proving that the earliest Australians were among the most sophisticated tool-makers of their time: no other culture had such axes for another 20,000 years.

“The axes were perfectly preserved, tucked up against the back wall of the shelter as we dug further and further,” Professor Clarkson told Fairfax Media.

“There was one on the surface, another further down that we dated at 10,000 years. Then there were quite a few further down still which were able to date at 35,000 to 40,000 years, and finally one at 65,000 years, surrounded by a whole bunch of stone flakes.”

The team had also found the oldest known seed-grinding tools in Australia, a large buried midden of sea shells and animal bones, and evidence of finely made stone spear tips.

maybe it went the other way..and the first were here and then went to africa? 😉

so they could be the first..

  1. I’m not sold that a piece of rock in a cave can be measured of when it was worked or buried in the cave. Certainly cant prove WHO worked the stone, and from what culture he was from. We have been told for 2 centuries that Tasmanian Aboriginies were of a different race to Mainland Aboriginies and were a Negroid race. We were told the Tasmanians were the 1st ones here and the ‘Late comers’, The Australian aboriginie came from Asia and displaced the Negroid race to Tasmania, when sea levels were lower. As the sea rose, and cut off Tassie from the mainland, it preserved the Negroid Tasmanian race….till white fella and his diseases (and guns) came along. So why cant those stone axes have been made by a Negroid tribe that was later displaced? Or why not a group that was here even earlier?

    Australia is very mysterious in its history.
    *1st explorers met Aboriginies who knew masonic hand signs.
    *Aztec carved idols discovered 10 feet underground.
    *Egyptian Hieroglyphs near Sydney.
    *An 800 year old skeleton of an well preserved Aboriginal man buried on a river bank with a SWORD CUT to his head!
    *The Stradbroke Galleon.
    *Gympie pyramid.
    *1st explorer discovering a 300 year old colony of Dutchmen numbering about 100 souls still living in the ‘Top End’ in early 1800 (Les Hiddens, The Bush Tucker Man; book, Australian Explorers)
    *Ancient Roman, Egyptian, and African coins found on Australian beaches.
    * Gold mining Near Sunshine coast 2000 years ago by Ancient Phoenicians
    *etc, etc, etc.

    White man 1st arrived in 1776… yeah, right.

  2. How do they get these dates ? C14 and radiometric dating is wild science
    After dating Mt St Helens lava at over a million years and dating 200 year old Pacific lava at 1.2 billion years the lab coats now ask for the history of the object so that they can reject crazy dates – in other words ” what date would you like sir ” .
    Of course it could not possibly be the dispersion of the tribes from Nimrod’s
    Babylon – then the continents being separated , like the parts of a jigsaw ”
    In the days of Peleg the earth was divided ” Genesis .
    With none of us human’s descending from trees as apes .

    It is anti science circular reasoning of Darwin’s crazy racist unproven theory .

  3. Just sent this to the dickhead ‘archaeologist..’.

    Hi Mr C.

    Stone axes in a cave? Buried how many inches deep? But you still dated them at 65,000 years!!!  How does a chipped stone get dated when the stone was ‘produced’ millions of years ago?

    However, your peers whom, have ‘studied’  (haha) the Easter Island huge stone carvings, which were once exposed down to their feet, with unencrypted writing on their legs, (why write on the legs if it isn’t exposed to read??) buried up to 6 METERS (to their waist)  in ‘sedimentary’ soil, (organic matter built up) are only dated at up to 1500 years!!! Bwhahaha!! Yet you ‘inches’ are dated at 65,000 years!!! duh!

    How much do they pay you to deceive the herd public? How long ago did the Tasmanian (Negroid) Aboriginies get here? When did the Tassie land bridge disappear? When did the “LATECOMERS” displace them from the mainland down to Tassie? What doesn’t add up mate? Your ‘science’!!!

    Universities have been exposed in America as Satanic worshipping, dens of paedophile Globalists. I have no doubt it extends to Australian Unis. This can only happen through corruption. Truth is being corrupted by, in and throughout or learning institutions.  There is an awakening. Bullshit stinks. People can smell it.

    • rtyuo

    • Diamonds , coal , oil and gas C14 date . They should have NO C14 at all
      if they were millions of years old. They call it contamination but this is impossible due to the nature of the terrain – plus ALL samples have C14
      cancelling out contamination

  4. Macquarie Uni & James Cook Uni will have to find new names..
