Description
									Australia is home to the oldest living creatures in the world. Over fifty thousand years ago, when Neanderthals still dominated Europe, and thousands of years before people reached America, people were spreading across this vast southern continent. These first modern people that journeyed out of Africa made the first open-ocean crossing in history, conducted the world's earliest ritual cremation, invented technologies such as the hafted stone axe and boomerang, etched the earliest depiction of the human face, engraved the world's first maps and made the earliest narrative paintings - leaving behind millions of prehistoric paintings, engravings, and archaeological sites across Australia.
