“A big jump”: people might have lived in Australia twice as long as we thought‘, Guardian Australia, 11 March 2019

Extensive archaeological research in southern Victoria has again raised the prospect that people have lived in Australia for 120,000 years – twice as long as the broadly accepted period of human continental habitation … While still tentative and very cautious in its conclusions and accepted implications, the archaeological research at Moyjil [Victoria] points to the possibility of an Aboriginal connection to country that stretches to twice that of the accepted 60 millennia, which already renders Indigenous continental occupation the longest continuous civilisation on Earth.
