Archaeologists in the north-west of Western Australia are conducting a survey with a difference at the bottom of the ocean.
- The researchers have been looking for ancient Indigenous artefacts on the seabed in the Dampier Archipelago
- Sea levels have risen 130m since the ice age, and artefacts like tools and rock carvings could still be underwater
- The team plan to publicly share “pretty exciting results” at the end of the year
The pioneering project is searching for underwater evidence of ancient Indigenous culture in the Dampier Archipelago.
