Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) September 14, 2013
The Past Masters, a network of passionate anthropologists, archeologists, numismatists, indigenous leaders and heritage consultants, has been featured in the September 14, 2013 edition of The Sydney Morning Herald. The story discusses the Past Masters expedition, which attempts to rewrite Australian history. The discovery of ancient African coins 8,000 miles from Tanzania suggests that Australia and its indigenous inhabitants may have a far older history.
"A Kilwa coin in Kilwa is not worth much. But a Kilwa coin in Arnhem Land is priceless for what it might tell us about our past," says Professor Ian McIntosh, one of the original founders of The Past Masters network.
The article notes that the team is crowdfunding the expedition that will get them to Marchinbar in 2014, along with the Indiana University's Office of Underwater Science, a team of veteran explorers known for searching several spanish treasure wrecks in the Caribbean.
"People find things, then put them in their sheds," says Professor Ian McIntosh while discussing the viability of the Past Masters as a network that is poised to grow to examine artifacts and pieces of history from sources around the world.
