all reached Australia centuries before the English did.
Australia was never lost, but was / is a nation inhabited by one of the oldest civilisation in the world.
You finally said it for me. For months I’ve been trying to get you to say it. Now you did. Thank you.
The English who are nothing more then the bastard children of the Romans, Normans & the vikings.
Man has only lived in what we now call the British Isles for some 6000 - 8000 years.
Pre-Roman Britain - The Neolithic Age
The new age of settlement took place around 4,500 BC, in what we now term the Neolithic Age.
compare that to the indigenous culture of Australia that dates back 80,000 years - 120,000 years.
I’ll give you a hint. Don’t argue with me on prehistory.
Lower Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age, for people like you witch was up to 250,000 years ago)
There is evidence from bones and flint tools found in coastal deposits near Happisburgh in Norfolk and Pakefield in Suffolk that a species of Homo was present in what is now Britain around 700,000 years ago.
That is from wiki but that is pretty much what is said in Britain BC (a book for you)
You know F*** all about prehistory compared to me, so don’t try and use it against me, just like I don’t know much about modern history so I don’t use it.
The prehistory of Australia is the period between the first human habitation of the Australian continent and the first definitive sighting of Australia by Europeans in 1606, which may be taken as the beginning of the recent history of Australia. This period is estimated to have lasted between 40,000 and 70,000 years.
This era is referred to as prehistory rather than history because there are no written records of human events in Australia which pre-date this contact.
The minimum widely-accepted timeframe for the arrival of humans in Australia is placed at least 40,000 years ago.
That is wrong. I agree with you that it was about 120,000 ish years BP.
