Australia's Aboriginal culture probably represents the oldest surviving culture in the world, with the use of stone tool technology and painting with red ochre pigment dating back over 60,000 years. Australians never developed an "iron age", "bronze age", or pottery, and the terms "palaeolithic" (old stone age) and "neolithic" (new stone age) are not used in Australia, because stone technology did not progress in the same way as the rest of the world.
The Stolen Generations, also Stolen children, is a term that is used to describe those children of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander race who were removed from their families by the Australian State government and church missions, under acts of their respective parliaments.
The Stolen Generations is the name given to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children taken away, forcibly removed and made wards of the state by the assimilation policies of successive Commonwealth, State and Territory governments of Australia.
