Bold study claims humans may have arrived in Australia 120,000 years ago

“”What makes the site so significant is its great age,” says John Sherwood, an author of the study. “Dating of the shells, burnt stones and surrounding cemented sands by a variety of methods has established that the deposit was formed about 120,000 years ago. That’s about twice the presently accepted age of arrival of people on the Australian continent, based on archaeological evidence. A human site of this antiquity, at the southern edge of the continent, would be of international significance because of its implications for the movement of modern humans out of Africa.”
