Oldest Known Aboriginal Site Discovered – Hutton Pulitzer #GoXplrr 

The oldest known proof of Aboriginal settlement in ancient Australia was stumbled upon accidentally after a car full of researchers pulled over for a toilet break.

Known as Warratyi by the Adnyamathanha people of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, a rock shelter was found to contain artifacts and the remains of megafauna, dating human settlement in the area back at least 49,000 years. That’s a very long time, 10,000 years further back than previously proven.
