Title: A shark-tooth ornament from Pleistocene Sahul
Date: 2007
Source: Antiquity
Abstract: The tooth of a tiger shark, perforated to make a pendant, was lost in New Ireland, New Guinea between 39 500 and 28 000 years ago. The author argues that this has to be the work of anatomically modern humans, and implies the use of symbolic language not only across the former continent of Sahul, but also Eurasia.
