Shell middens are rare in Lake Mungo, and when they do occur are small, indicating that shellfish did not play a large role in the diets of the people who lived there. About 40, years ago, the climate became consistently drier and the world plunged into a cold, glacial phase from 22, years ago. The cranial vault is without most of its left side and base, with the facial skeleton also incomplete. The method also assumes a 'zeroing' event in the life of the material, when it was either last heated or exposed to sunlight.
Forty years ago.
Controversy has flared again over the age of Mungo Man, Australia's oldest human remains, after claims from a Melbourne University-led study that he is 22, years younger than previously thought. But although the study claims broad agreement on Mungo Man's age, a leading expert on archaeology has dismissed the findings as inconclusive. The study, published today in the science journal Natureis a stunning rebuke to a Australian National University study that put Mungo Man's age at 62, years. Professor Bowler said that, unlike the ANU study findings, Mungo Man's new age of about 40, years was a "consensus" view.
