Australian Indigenous oral histories may have been stable over millennia

Interesting article on how the oral traditions of the Australian Indigenous peoples may literally have been passed down from the last ice age - over 7000 years ago - relating the rise in sea levels. Essentially this was done by a system of intergenerational checking that kept the stories extremely stable over time.

That's pretty fascinating.
