Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Burrill  Lake Rock Shelter

Situated on the south coast of New South Wales, this large sandstone rock shelter was first occupied about 20,000 years ago. Examples of the Australian core tool and scraper tradition have been found at this site, such as horse-hoof cores. From about 5,000 years ago there is a change to the Australian small tool tradition, from this time backed blades have been found.
