A touring exhibition from University of Queensland Anthropological Museum. Presenting a visually striking and narrative rich exhibition chronicling extraordinary stories from one of the most remote locations at the very heart of Australia. Channel Country is renowned as the intersection for Aboriginal trade networks that connect the continent. Revelations of the age and scale of sites in this landscape are evocative and lead to a reimagining of the deep history of this country. A newly rediscovered ancient giant Scorpious Stone Arrangement in the remote desert of far western QLD, is offering new clues about the Mithika indigenous history for Associate Prof of Archeology Michael Westaway along with colleagues Dr Kelsey Lowe a geo archeologist, and Ian Andrews a surveyor volunteer, on Mithika lands north of Birdsville. The research team are completing a geo physical survey of site in an attempt to help understand the purpose of the secret stone structures.
