First discovery of 50,000-year-old human settlements in Australian interior

Quote:In a stunning discovery, a team of archaeologists in Australia has found extensive remains of a sophisticated human community living 50,000 years ago. The remains were found in a rock shelter in the continent's arid southern interior. Packed with a range of tools, decorative pigments, and animal bones, the shelter is a wide, roomy space located in the Flinders Ranges, which are the ancestral lands of the Adnyamathanha. The find overturns previous hypotheses of how humans colonized Australia, and it also proves that they interacted with now-extinct megafauna that ranged across the continent.

They mention two different methods of dating in this article, C14 and optically simulated luminescence, most articles don't mention how they arrive at their dates, glad to see that information in there.

The earth is only 6000 years old so clearly this is erroneous.
