A biography of the Australian continent 

Walkunder Arch Cave

The cave is situated near Chillagoe. A long cultural sequence has been found here, occupation goes back more than 18,000 years. There are 2 patinanted geometric engravings, and a horsehoof core was found in the basement level, as well as a waisted tool, shells and wallaby bones. Burnt antbed or termite mound were found throughout the deposit, indicating that it was used as fuel up to near modern times.
