Australian-born anthropologist links ancient African coins and over one thousand years-old cross continents trade


 
From Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, Australia,  kilwa coin dates to  1100 years.


Trace of over a thousand year of trading between civilisations, in ancient Australia, seemed to have been found, according to recent finding on 900 years old African coins.

 
Known as Kilwa coins and first discovered in 1944, on Wessels Islands, Australia, they are now subject of research by Australian, Ian Mcintosh, a professor of Anthropology at Indiana university, U.S., who argues that the coins could also shed more light on the history of Aboriginal rock art.
