    As an old bloke who has an interest in original settlement and genetic features, I have read many brilliant words from numerous writers all who have looked at various skeletal features of early Australians, and they tell an interesting story of Java man referred to as Homo erectus and others, it appears there were more than one type of archaic man and maybe isolated evolution of more here.
    The work by Steven & Evan is fantastic and we look forward to more of their work. I am witting my words on this subject for my grandchildren so when I’m gone they will have some of my experiences and references to look back on, and I am going to tell them of this great work. I have found a common line of references that draws an occupation of very different Homo species in our history right through to later arrivals from India 4,500 years ago, with each wave of settlement dominating, taking over and eliminating the previous occupants by competing for food and resources, thus isolated groups continued in some areas producing ancient types in modern times.

    Thank you for such a fascinating read, i have just been trying to research the Kow swamp and Coobool Creek skulls. These were problematic for the scientists as they look so archaic are much more massive and taller than modern indigenous people. They also had thick cranium bones and other massive bones. The problem was that they were much younger dated to 13,000 to 9,000 BP. (These dates are right in the range of the fall of Atlantis) Quite a bit of cranial deformation was found amongst them. These mysterious people have not been studied for nearly 30 years. The Coobool Creek remains were repatriated at that time. It’s a pity no one kept a sample of DNA. There are indigenous people who have this look walking around today but they are much smaller. I couldnt find much research on them, it was mainly done by one guy, Peter Brown. There a lots of cranium measurements and comparisons for proving cranial deformation, pages and pages, but nowhere at any time does anyone say how tall they were, just much taller.

    Once again gentlemen BRAVO!
    Another fantastic, well written and comprehensive update on these incredible, historically significant Australian finds.
    Steven you and your team have produced research material that will (in my view) will be puzzled over and marveled at for many years to come.
    Well done matey.
