Australian Aboriginal culture is widely recognised as the oldest living culture in the world, but have you ever wondered what it was like for Aboriginal Australians to live by the stars?
The latest study in Aboriginal astronomy has found a site that could be older than Stonehenge, and even pre-date the Great Pyramids of Giza.
We talk to Dr Duane Hamacher from Monash University, and Jesse Fleay, PhD candidate at Edith Cowan University.
This discussion was broadcast as part of Speaking Out with Larissa Behrendt on ABC radio at 9pm, Sunday 6 Nov 2016.
