Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Coral Bay, Western Australia

At some locations, such as Coral Bay in Western Australia, there is evidence of harvesting of Genyornis eggs. The shells showed evidence, in the form of point-burning, as occurs when emu eggs were eaten and the shells peeled, some fragments of shell dropping near the fire so that only a protruding point on a piece of shell was burnt. If it was burnt in a bushfire the whole of the shell would show signs of burning.
