Lydenburg Stones : The Aboriginal Connection
ABORIGINAL Australians are descended from the same small group of people who left Africa about 70,000 years ago and colonised the rest of the world, a large genetic study shows.
After arriving in Australia and New Guinea about 50,000 years ago, the settlers evolved in relative isolation, developing unique genetic characteristics and technology.
The study, by an international team of researchers, is another nail in the coffin for the theory that modern humans, Homo sapiens, interbred with archaic humans, such as Homo erectus, as they spread around the globe.
