  • NEW archaeological records provide evidence of a lost Atlantis-like landscape that early humans travelled on more than 70,000 years ago.
  • The supercontinent, once known as Sahul, was a landmass that was exposed thousands of years ago during the Pleistocene epoch.
  • During this period, Earth was in the middle of the last ice age.
