"This clip explores Dr Alan Thorne’s controversial viewpoint that modern Aboriginal peoples are the descendents of two groups of peoples from Indonesia and eastern Asia, principally China."

It's an interesting topic, and an interesting link.

I've read theories about how Australian indigenous folks are (allegedly) descended from other groups of people as well - notably the Tamil people of India and the Fuegian people of Tierra del Fuego.

We've no clear idea how many waves of migration may have occurred in ancient times, so it's possible all these groups contributed to the ancestry of modern indigenous Australians. It's also possible that none of them did. There are also the so-called Australian Pygmies, who are/were living proof that there were distinct racial groups co-existing on the Australian mainland for a very long time before Europeans arrived.

The skull he presented from the Pintubi tribal area was interesting with its robust brow, large nasal hole etc... reminiscent of the (in)famous Pintubi-1 skull yet lacking the enormous eye sockets, cone-shaped head... I wonder if it had a similar sized Occipital bun as the Pintubi-1 skull?

Perhaps, he is not holding up two separate races, but one, genetically combined with the Doolighal (as represented by the Pintubi-1 skull IMO)
... DNA mixing from interbreeding the lighter, 'modern H. sapiens' with the Doolighal already here?
