#Aboriginal settlement in #Australia was planned migration, study says

Aboriginal settlement in Australia was planned migration, study says – [smh.com.au] – “There’s always been a lot of speculation about how Aboriginal people made it to Australia and a lot of people have argued that people might have made it here by accident,” study co-author and James Cook University archaeology Professor Sean Ulm said.

“What this study has shown … is that it’s so absolutely improbable that you can explain any of those lines of evidence with accidental voyaging.

“It has to be purposeful, it has to be co-ordinated and it has to be fairly large-scale to explain the patterns we see.”
