added by archaeologs The Gunung Subis limestone massif near Niah in Sarawak, East Malaysia, contains a number of massive limestone caves, used for habitation and burial in ancient times. The most important, called the Great Cave, has archaeological deposits going back to 40,000 years ago, with a pebble and flake industry and human burials in its lower levels. The latter are presumed early Australoid and comprise an isolated skull at c40,000 years (perhaps less) and full skeletons from cl5,000 years ago. Upper levels are Neolithic and Metal Age, and appear to date from about 2000 BC onwards.
