Professor Rainer Grün, director of Griffith University’s Australian research centre for human evolution, headed the team that reconstructed and dated the fossil as at least 210,000 years old.
The fossil was found in Greece.

2. Modelling shows 'mind-blowing' ancient Aboriginal journey to Australia

Recent archaeological evidence shows that they have been here for at least 60,000 (not 50,000 years as the author alleges).

Even though the straits separating Australia from Asia then were fewer in number and narrower than now, I find it impressive that paleolithic man so far in humankind's distant path had developed sea-craft capable of making the crossing.

Fairly early in his career in populating the Earth, homo sapiens had become a seafarer.
