This confirms what I had suspected many years ago, that dates in the palaeolithic era would be steadily pushed back further and further as more accurate scientific evidence comes to light over the years.

I suspected this as well. It takes longer than 11,000 years to populate two unexplored continents from such a small starter group.

All dates get pushed back as older evidence is found. It's highly unlikely that the first evidence found would be the absolute oldest. If the media wanted to be at all accurate, instead of saying "arrived 6000 years earlier," they would say "at least 6000 years earlier" and such.
