Recent archaeological discoveries in East Kalimantan, Indonesia

Abstract : Since 1992, thanks to the exceptional interest generated by caving teams crossing Kalimantan from west to east in 1988, a large quantity of archaeological discoveries has been revealed. A Franco-Indonesian team has surveyed caves and rockshelters in East Kalimantan to shed some light on an archaeologically unknown territory. Altogether, more than 100 caves have been visited and checked, of which over 30 contain undoubtable rock paintings. These sites are located in two main karstic areas located north of Sangkulirang and northwest of Sangatta, inland from the Mangkalihat Peninsula of Kalimantan Timur.
