Lake Mungo is home to the oldest human remains in Australia, and the oldest ritual burials in the world. Through the disciplines of science, geology and archaeology students are provided with a 'window to Australia's past.' This curriculum package supports teachers to take students on a powerful journey into the heart of Ancient Australia and the earliest lifestyles of Indigenous Peoples. Rarely do students have access to a scientist’s research. This resource is based on the work of Prof Jim Bowler who, together with Mungo Lady and Mungo Man redefined Australian history.
