‘Message from Mungo’ screening 18 August NITV

The documentary ‘Message from Mungo’ which was also shown at the Australian Historical Association conference this year, is screening on NITV on Tuesday 18th August 2015 at 8.00 p.m.  Filmed over eight years, the documentary explores the 42,000 year old remains of Lake Mungo woman, revealed by the shifting dunes around Lake Mungo in 1968.  The indigenous people of the area see the repatriation of her bones as a way of  returning to her tribal lands, while  historians and archaeologists see her as an artefact that reveals information about mankind. This Guardian article gives more information.
