Summary
Discusses megafauna and the Cuddie Springs site, near Brewarrina, where there is a record of people, environment and animals preserved in a lake bed; evidence of co-existence of people and megafauna over the period from 35,000 to 28,000 years ago; discusses evidence that megafauna butchered but unknown if megafauna hunted or scavenged; discusses climate and food supplies, including grinding stone use which indicates scarce food supplies and an arid climate; summarizes findings and argues Cuddie Springs does not support theory that megafauna disappeared as a result of human hunting/overkill but does provide evidence for theory that they disappeared as a result of climate change, at Cuddie Springs site only; concludes that research at Cuddie Springs raises more questions than it answers
