Yes I read this just this morning, very interesting. Thanks for posting.Artefacts of animal bone and charcoal recently found at the Ganga Maya cave site in the WA's Pilbara region and analysed through carbon-dating techniques
indicate use of the cave may date from more than 45,000 years ago.
These early dates make the site a contender for one of a few of the earliest known for people in Australia.
There are more caves in the area yet to be explored by archaeologists.
