Human Journey: Australia

Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
It's a huge puzzle, how our ancient ancestors made it as far as Australia from Africa, a journey that involved at least one sea crossing. But it's even more puzzling that they arrived there long before our species reached the much closer continent of Europe. Why, having survived a supervolcano and fought off other hostile humans (as the evidence suggests), did they risk it all by making a perillous ocean crossing? Apart from some very ancient human remains in Australia that confirm the arrival of our species, there is very little to go on. In Australia, we discover new evidence for this incredible journey. Australia is part of a BBC series, Human Journey, exploring anthropology.
