First ancient Aboriginal underwater sites

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Scientists have discovered Australia's first ever ancient Aboriginal underwater archaeological sites, settled on the sea bed for thousands of years.

Hidden relics, including hundreds of stone tools and grinding stones, have been found at two sites off Western Australia's remote Pilbara region, close to the Burrup Peninsula which is renowned for its ancient rock engravings.

The discoveries of 269 artefacts at Cape Bruguieres and an 8,500-year-old underwater freshwater spring at Flying Foam Passage off Dampier were published today in the open access scientific journal PLOS One.
