Humans occupied Australia 65,000 years ago

Human occupation of northern Australia by 65,000 year.

New excavations at site in in northern Australia push back the possible populating of Australia a further 15k years, using based on thermo-luminescence and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating of the surrounding sediments..

This evidence sets a new minimum age for the arrival of humans in Australia, the dispersal of modern humans out of Africa, and the subsequent interactions of modern humans with Neanderthals and Denisovans.

As well as living in the same region as the ancient, now extinct, Homo floresiensis aka 'the hobbit', for at least 15,000 years.
