7,000-year-old Tools Found

News

Australian scientists have discovered the country’s first underwater archaeological sites off the west coast, which date back 7,000 years. Hundreds of stone tools carved by the aboriginal people of the land were found here, on a site that would have been a dry seabed at that time. Divers from Flinders University pulled out these objects from a depth of between 8 to 36ft. The objects are being carbondated to know more about the environment at that time.
