Description

It is not often that a director of archaeology gets told something he doesn't know about rock art by a bunch of school children.

But that is what happened to the University of Western Australia's (UWA) Sven Ouzman when he visited Kalumburu Remote Community School in the northern Kimberley as part of a knowledge exchange program.

"Kalumburu is probably one of the few places in the world where one can go and the students arguably know more about stone tools and rock art than you do," Dr Ouzman, who is also a team member of UWA's Rock Art Research Centre, said.
