"The mystery of the Mungo people. Near this long dried out lake site in outback New South Wales, Australia, known as 'The walls of China', lived the people of Mungo. It is here that Dr. Jim Bowler discovered the 80,000 year + remains of a completely modern man - the oldest found so far anywhere in the world. Yet, at "Kow Swamp" (bottom right photograph) - a drowned forest, a mere 300 km away in Victoria and only 9,000 to 15,000 years ago, lived a very different people, still with the robust features of primitve man."--In ink on sheet below images; Signed and dated by photographer lower right of sheet.
