“Perak’s Contribution to Global Archaeology”

Venue  : Darul Ridzuan Museum, Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang, Ipoh
Date     : 17 – 26 December 2010
Time    : 10 am – 5pm
Admission is FREE

This exhibition on Archaeology is jointly organised by USM’s (Universiti Sains Malaysia) Global Archaeological Research Centre and the Darul Ridzuan Museum on the various Archaeological discoveries in Perak.

The exhibition concentrates on some rock finds in Bukit Bunuh, Lenggong Valley that have been dated to 1.83 million years ago. In these seuvite rocks are embedded stone tools such as hand axes and chopping tools, an indication that man existed at the site way back in time.

More than that, do drop by and make a date with the 10,000-year-old Perak Man discovered in Lenggong in 1991.
