From what I understand, Ivan Milat has internet access so perhaps he can pop in here and give us the skinny

I live very near there and let me tell you, it's a spooky place at the best of times. A body could lay there for years and never be found.
Does it surprise me that they've found another? Not at all.
Is it one od Milat's victims? Time will tell.
Either way, let us hope it's the last remains to be found.

This guy is a real piece of work. It sounds like a more extensive search is in order. Does his family cooperate at all? Dave

Since no clothing was found, how do they know the remains aren't a thousand years old?

Sdreid, they seem to be playing it close to the vest in the article but If I had to guess, relative age can be estimated by recovery conditions. Thousand year old bones would not present in a surface context with multiple bones like described in the article. Taphonomic processes might bring a (singular) thousand year old bone to the surface, but not widely distributed multiple bones. Dave
