settling Australia

Toronto, 2017.03.09

It looks like Australia's original settlers lived without mass warfare; an interesting break with the usual pattern of human history. Or so says this report. It's also interesting that a) it all happened 50,000 years ago, and b) just one group of migrants wound up settling an entire continent (well, it's lush periphery, anyway) in only 2,000 years.
