Ancient Aussie Cave Art Found
If it weren’t for some wasp nests sitting atop some ancient kangaroo cave art, researchers would never have been able to determine the age of this amazing find. The magnificent art was in fact dated between 17,100 and 17,300 years old, thanks to three wasp nests that were carbon dated.
The discovery of the kangaroo art is significant, because it signifies the oldest known cave art recorded to date in Australia and reveals that there was a movement by aboriginal natives toward sheltered areas, away from ancient cataclysms. Within these boundary systems, people would live for a long time, and creativity and art were vital for longtime sanity. Here’s more on the discovery from BuzWeaver and the Lost History Channel TKTC.
