”Boomeranged down”

An Australian aboriginal people, whose skeleton was discovered at a riverbank in New South Wales’ Toorale National Park, Australia, two years ago, has been diagnosed to have fallen victim to a boomerang attack. First, it was thought that the individual’s head injuries were inflicted with a sword of an English colonizer but radiocarbon dating suggested that ”Kaakutja” died in the 13th century. Further examinations of his skull have found that “Kaakutja” was killed by a boomerang that damaged his skull.
