Aboriginal massacre sites uncovered in first forensic science study

Cutting edge forensic science techniques have been used in a fresh examination of reported Aboriginal massacre sites in WA's north, in an effort to prove alleged atrocities from 100 years ago. A team of archaeologists and forensic scientists travelled to some of the most remote spots in WA to examine bone fragments found at the sites, which have been mired in historical and political debate for decades. Lead researcher Pam Smith said that while some of the results were inconclusive, the findings of the most advanced study of the alleged 1922 Sturt Massacre had backed up the oral histories of local Aboriginal elders.
