in the books of years ' 60, that many of us have in their library, to the man of Australia
they do not assign more than 10,000 years, and therefore we enjoy of this boom of discoveries.
Alexander Marschack, in a short note in the web, speaks about an anatomically modern man, with artistic activity
(" Rock Art and ochre, in northwestern Australia "), between 75.000 and 100.000 years ago (Fullagar ET Al., 1996).
If the attribution is correct, Australia has the primacy for
the engravings on cliff.
We do not know nothing about the paleolithic lithic sculpture, that is if in Australia
has been made, or not. In any case, we have no news about it .
At the moment, it cannot not even be asserted if the
men that produced Rock Art have been the ancestors of the present australian Aboriginals .It is probable that the migrations in Australia have taken place at vorious times.
