Hunt for underwater treasure

ARCHAEOLOGISTS have discovered underwater caves on the Sydney coastline that are expected to provide new insights into human life on our shores more than 6000 years ago.

Research will be presented at a conference this month that pinpoints the submerged caves, which experts believe were once rock shelters on dry land.

A team of archaeologists believes further exploration of the "drowned" sites around Port Hacking, within the Royal National Park, will reveal preserved tools and other artefacts used by the area's pre-European inhabitants.
