About 62,000 years ago Mungo Man lived with his family at Lake Mungo. Mungo Man was about 170cm tall. When he was young he lost his two front canine teeth. Over the years his molar teeth became worn and scratched. As Mungo Man grew older his bone ached with arthritis, especially his right elbow, which was worn out because it was so damaged.
About 4000 years ago Narrabeen Man lived along at Narrabeen. Narrabeen Man was about 180cm tall and he was a tall Aboriginal. He was a costal dweller, which means he lived near the coast and eat sea creatures.
Narrabeen Man was discovered on January 2005 under a bus stop on a corner of Octavia and Ocean Street, Sydney, New South Wales.
There were 5 sharp spear points lodged in Narrabeen Man's spine when he was found. One of the sharp spear points was lodged in his damage vertebra.
This is Narrabeen Man’s skeleton at Sydney University’s Shellshear Museum.
Alan Thorne and another archaeologist were studying the skeleton of Mungo Man at Lake Mungo, Narrabeen, New South Wales.
Archaeologists knows that Mungo Man died of arthritis because his right elbow had been damaged and warned out.
What the expert say (Narrabeen Man)
How were they preserved
Mungo Man was carefully buried with his hands crossed on his lap and his family sprinkled him with red ochre afterward.
Narrabeen Man wasn't preserved as he had been murdered and he was slightly burnt after he died.
Dr. Jo McDonald
It doesn't appear to be a burial at all. He certainly looked as though he'd been flung on the ground.
Dr. Denise Donlon
, physical anthropologist
I estimated from his limb bones that he was 183cm tall and this is very tall for an Aboriginal man. The average height for Aboriginal men was 167cm. He was unusually tall.
, Aboriginal Cultural and Educational Officer
He must have done something very bad to the mobs here. What he did would only be speculation on my behalf but the way the wounds are and what see of him, it would have been something really bad.
Dr. Paul Willis
, ABC science reporter
One spear entered from the front, cutting the intestines and a kidney and lodging in the spine. Second spear was thrown from behind and also lodged in the spine. Third spear bounced off the skull and it was also hit with another sharp implement. More spears were embedded in the body but they did not do any damage to the bones.
Dr. Richard Fullagar
, archaeologist specialising in stone tools
The Narrabeen Man artifacts provide the first Australian archaeological evidence of (these weapons) being used for fighting, payback killing or other human violence, as distinct from hunting animals.
This is the bus stop where the skeleton of Narrabeen Man was been dug out when workers were digging for wires.
The dark area on Narrabeen Man's skeleton was where he was burnt. The arrow shows the damage caused by small sharp stones.
Archaeological drawing shows the position of the sharp spear points embedded in Narrabeen Man's remain.
This is where Mungo Man was found by Jim Bowler and the native Aboriginal was studying it.
, Professor of Biological Anthropology
There were number of differences between the modern human DNA and Mungo Man's DNA.
I am sure that Mungo Man lived between 56,000 to 68,000 years ago and he was a modern Homo sapiens.
This is what archaeologists think Mungo Man look liked 62,000 years ago.
This is a time sequence of Mungo Man's burial.
