40,000 to 42,000 years old
Beside above, how did Mungo Lady Die? Mungo Lady and Mungo Man About 42,000 years ago, Mungo Lady lived around the shores of Lake Mungo. When Mungo Lady died, we know her family mourned for her. Her body was cremated, the remaining bones were crushed, burned again and then buried in the growing lunette.
Subsequently, question is, who is Mungo Lady?
Mungo Lady, also known as Mungo Woman or by the scientific identifier 'Willandra Lakes Hominid 1' (WLH 1), emerged, in fragments, from an eroding lunette on the downwind side of the now-dry Lake Mungo. In February 1974 Bowler found Mungo Man (WLH 3) nearby.
Where is Mungo Lady now?
Geologist Jim Bowler discovered the bones, known as Mungo Man and Mungo Lady, buried in the sands near Lake Mungo in western NSW in 1974, and the remains now sit in Canberra's National Museum of Australia.
