History has been rewritten! Scientists find evidence in Aboriginal site, located on the Australian seabed
The first batch of underwater indigenous handicrafts in Australia was recently discovered by archaeologists. This indigenous handicrafts can be traced back thousands of years. This discovery has rewritten Mainland Australia cultural history.
The archaeological site of these indigenous handicrafts is in Australia It was discovered in the northwestern waters. It was on land thousands of years ago. This discovery was made by archaeologists during a series of archaeological and geophysical surveys in the Dampier Archipelago. Not only that, Western Australia Aboriginal handicrafts found on the coast of Pilbara are also the oldest underwater archaeology known to date in Australia Find.
An underwater archaeological team composed of international archaeologists Hundreds of stone tools made by indigenous people have been discovered. These ancient underwater ruins have revealed new evidence to prove that this was the indigenous way of life on the land because of the low sea level thousands of years ago. Underwater archaeological sites represent the marine countries depicted by many Aboriginal Australians today. They have a profound culture, spirit and Historical connections.
Associate Professor of Marine Archaeology at Flinders University Jonathan Benjamin (Jonathan Benjamin) said that the underwater archaeological site we once discovered on land this time was an exciting discovery for Australian archaeology, because we integrated marine and indigenous archaeology, and land and sea Established a connection.
In fact, Australia is a huge land, but very Few people know that after the end of the last ice age, more than 30%of the land was submerged by seawater, which means that a lot of archaeological evidence documenting the life of the Australian indigenous people was submerged underwater, and this archaeologist’s discovery It is enough to prove that some archaeological remains can survive the rise of sea level, so it can be said that these new discoveries are of great significance for exploring Australian archaeology.
Underwater archaeological team at Cape Bruguieres (Cape Bruguieres) discovered 269 artifacts located in shallow water 8 feet (2.4 meters) below sea level. Archaeologists confirmed through radiocarbon dating and sea level data analysis that the site has a history of at least 7000 years . In addition, the second site discovered by the underwater archaeological team was located 46 feet (14 meters) underwater near the Flying Foam Passage. The site is at least 8,500 years old.
The team of archaeologists and geoscientists uses predictive models and various An underwater remote sensing technology was used to confirm the location of the site and the number of cultural relics. The findings of archaeologists indicate that the underwater sites survived the sea level rise process. Although these sites are located in relatively shallow waters, they are located in the offshore There may be more discoveries in deeper waters.
Marine geomorphologist Michael Ole of the University of Western Australia Dr. Li (Michael O&39; Leary) believes that these areas that are still underwater provide a favorable living environment for the indigenous people at that time, including freshwater, ecological diversity and opportunities for the development of marine resources, and these environments can fully support Relatively high population density.
For this archaeologist’s discovery, I think It represents a solid step for mankind to explore the archaeology of the continental shelf. This will fill a major gap in human history. What do you think? Welcome to leave a comment in the comment area
