|Unambal||Aborigine Tribe of north west Australia.
|Upper Palaeolithic||This period, from approximately 40,000 to 10,000 years ago, is often divided into three subperiods: the Early Upper Palaeolithic (before the main glacial period), the Middle Upper Palaeolithic (the main glacial period) and the Late Upper Palaeolithic (after the main glacial period). Evidence of Neanderthal occupation of Britain is limited and by 30,000 BC the first signs of modern human (Homo sapiens) activity, the Aurignacian industry, are known. The most famous example from this period is the burial of the 'Red Lady of Paviland' (actually now known to be a man) in modern day coastal south Wales.|
