Recent findings in Archaeology after 11 years of research has suggested that the Original People of Australia were here 120,000 years ago.
The announcement comes after 11 years of research on evidence found of fire, black stones, and scattered shell middens at steep cliffs in Moyjil (Port Ritchie) Victoria. The findings have been brought forward in a CSIRO article by a group of well-known academics including Jim Bowler, known for his famous discovery of Mungo Man and Mungo Lady between 1969 -1974.
Abstract analysis reads:
Thermal luminescence analyses of blackened stones provide ages in the MIS 5e range, 100–130 ka, consistent with independent stratigraphic evidence and contemporaneous with the age of the surface on which they lie. The distribution of fire-darkened stones is inconsistent with wildfire effects. Two hearth-like features closely associated with the disconformity provide further indications of potential human agency. The data are consistent with the suggestion of human presence at Warrnambool during the Last Interglacia
In the absence of any evidence of natural fire, the suggestion of possible hearths points somewhat uncomfortably towards
humanagency. For some, an acceptance of human presence in Australia 120,000 years ago as a possibility may now tentatively advance to one of probability
The pendulum in
the Nature–People controversy has swung in one direction. The mere suggestion of people near 120 ka raises an entirely new set of questions in the exploration of Australia’s human story

There have been similar dates for occupation given in the Kimberley that has been dismissed over the years. Archaeologists have also been suggesting for decades that the Kimberley Rock Art is the Oldest Art in the world.
Unique Sites in Australia
The Gabarnmung site in Arnhem Land holds an example of the oldest Stone Engineering in the world, and Rock Art depicted at Gabarnmung rivals the Sistine Chapel. The foundation itself
The Murujuga Petroglyph site found in Western Australia has over a million rocks carved and is the biggest Library in the world. It also holds the oldest known carved depiction of a human face. A unique demonstration.
There are over 100,000 Rock Art sites across Australia. More than anywhere else in the world. The amount in excess has been unknown for years. Australia has no National strategy or register of its known rock art. Tourists visit Australia and on their walks just so happen to find another rock art site. These sites are all a part of a “demonstration” left by the Original ancestors. A demonstrated example that you can not find anywhere else in the world. My opinion is that evidence of Rock Art needs to be flowing out of Africa like the river Nile and needs to fill the caves of Europe before it overwhelms
There are sites in Queensland where dates have been suggested before 50,000 years ago. Firestick farming dates have been written off over the years in Qld and N.S.W and Victoria with similar dates. This is by far not the first time high dates have been suggested for an Archaeological site in Australia. The question is, how long before this one is dismissed or pushed aside?
Original People Online Conclusion
- Science – Tells us we have been here since a certain time.
- Spirituality – Tells us we have been here since the start of time.
- Science is simply “Seen or obseved Spirituality”
- Spirituality is simply “Un-Seen or Unobserved Science”
How can anyone say that the Original ancestors are right or wrong?
