Australia, around 39987BP (Before the Present): this chronicle comes alive from the legend of a great sweeping saga, which covered of the lives of four Australians who lived and died numerous generations ago. Their meeting and lives together left an archaeological puzzle that stands even today. In those times – the chronicle reveals – Mega-fauna: the giant-sized animal ancestors of our unique modern day fauna yet roamed across our lands. The stage is set; the lights drop, the curtain rises – and when the lights come back up at the scene of a ‘dig’ on the shores of Lake Mungo, two Australian archaeologists have uncovered two sets of ancient bones; both buried with particular ceremony previously unheard of for people from those times.
