Lake Mungo is one of seventeen dry lakes that make up the World Heritage listed Willandra Lakes region. On its shores, one can find a collection of archaeological curiosities: old campfires, middens, and the occasional human skeleton.
In February 1974, one such skeleton destroyed the preexisting notions of aboriginal origin, and created an entirely new swathe of questions. LM3 is possibly one of the most important finds in Australia, to the local aboriginal tribes, the aboriginal culture in general, and archaeologists. Join Holly and Matthew as they look into the history of Lake Mungo, its Lady and the Mungo Man.
