Like something from Indiana Jones, five ancient coins and a map marked with an "X" might lead to the rewriting of Australia's history http://ow.ly/1WoP12 Australian scientist Ian McIntosh is planning an expedition to the site where five coins were found in the Northern Territory in 1944 that have proven to be 1000 years old. That opens up the possibility that seafarers from distant countries landed in Australia much earlier than is currently believed. The soldier who found them marked their location on an old colleague’s map with an ‘‘X’’ and forgot about it until 1979 when he went to a museum to get them valued. The discovery was apparently forgotten again until anthropologist McIntosh got the ball rolling a few months ago.
