In the Pilbara region, which extends over some 500,000 square kilometers of land, it is one of the most amazing places in Australia in which are the most primitive remains of life found so far.
The old pilbara landscape It holds a large number of prehistoric secrets, some of them have recently been presented by experts working in the area.
Researchers, having collected rock samples in the area, have come across a mineral called "Tranquilityite" of which until now it was thought that he was only on the moon. The team from the University of Western Australia (UWA) together with Curtin University in Perth found the mineral in six different locations in the north of the state.
In addition to the mineral, a series of bacteria have been found that lived barely a billion years after the Earth was formed.
According to the researchers, It is the oldest fossil find on our planet in which, unlike dinosaurs, the body parts are not petrified.
On the surface of the stones are engraved a series of figures that could perfectly be made by our ancestors. One of the most famous petroglyphs was made before Stonehenge.
Between the carved images there are animals already extinct (up to 3,000 years ago) and various human faces. The estimated number of images found is around one million.
The climate of the Dampier archipelago It is of the semi-desert tropical type, with low annual rainfall and a high rate of evaporation, something that undoubtedly facilitates low erosion and thus the rock art is preserved for up to 60,000 years.
I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
