It's about time: the return of Mungo Man

The oldest humans found on the continent were not excavated – they came back through natural erosion to tell their story. Mungo Man – his hands folded reverently 42,000 years ago in complex burial rites at Lake Mungo in south-western New South Wales – revealed himself in 1974. Unlike hundreds of unidentified Aboriginal human remains we know precisely where Mungo Man came from. So why has it taken so long for this revered ancestor to be repatriated to his country?
