This documentary, in the form of a satellite map, is the fifth and last of a series of maps that cover fossil sites worldwide. This map traces the fossil sites of Antarctica, Australia, and New Caledonia. Sites in this map of special interest include Cuddie Springs where scientists believe they have discovered 10,000 years of co-habitation. Included in the map are: Mungo Man (the oldest human remains in Australia found at Lake Mungo), dinosaurs and megafauna found at Seymore Island and the mountains of Antarctica.

The locations are based on the following resources:

  • Wikipedia’s List of Fossil Sites
  • austhrutime.com
