Talgai

Talgai

 

a Stone Age site in southeastern Queensland, in eastern Australia, where the damaged skull of a youth was discovered in 1884. The bones of extinct marsupials were found in the same excavated layers. The Talgai skull resembles the skull of the modern Australian aborigines but is more massive, with more strongly developed superciliary arches and a more pronounced prognathism. The skull belonged to a representative of one of the proto-Australian groups that settled in Australia in ancient times. Its absolute age is 10,000 to 12,000 years.
