Aboriginal People Are the Oldest People on Earth, Scientists Say

Aboriginal People

They inhabited Australia continuously for 40,000 years. According to a new study, the Aboriginal people are the oldest unbroken civilization on Earth. The study, in fact, shows evidence of a single colonization event in Australia, and a continuity of occupation of the same genetic signature, over a period of about 40 thousand years. This is due to the fact that Aborigines too left Africa 72,000 years ago, but separated from other ethnic groups 37,000 years ago.
