Many scientists already accepted that the shelter, called Madjedbebe, was home to the earliest evidence of humans in Australia.But now, sophisticated dating of sediments at the site confirms it is one of the most significant cultural and archaeological sites in the world.Folklore tales will keep your imagination on high throughout the hike, not to mention the opportunity to spot fresh water crocodiles. Take a cruise through the gorge to see the Nitmiluk area up close and personal.Tonight we head for Kakadu National Park, resting up so we can head deep into the bush in the morning.We’ll check out some mind-boggling termite mounds before getting our waterfall fix at Florence Falls – four pounding waterfalls pouring into deep, picture-perfect waterholes with dense rainforest as the backdrop, Mother Nature in her element.
“I was asked to perform a ‘blind’ OSL dating test of some of the samples that had been independently dated by our colleagues at the University of Wollongong.”The results were identical and confirmed the accuracy of the site’s chronology – independent crosschecking between multiple dating laboratories, which represents a benchmark chronological study for Australian archaeology.“Significant advances in dating methodologies, particularly single-grain OSL techniques and statistical age-depth modelling, have meant that the chronology of archaeological sites like Madjedbebe can now be resolved with much greater accuracy, precision and resolution,” says Dr Arnold.
