Archaeologists have stumbled upon human skeletal remains believed to be from the Mesolithic Age in the Bewah Cave in the Kenyir Lake area.The remains, believed to be those of a youth, are estimated to be between 8,000 and 11,000 years old, said Prof Datuk Dr Nik Hasan Shuhaimi Nik Abdul Rahman, deputy director of the Institute of the Malay World and Civilisation of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).The remains were uncovered by archaeologists from UKM, the Museums Department and the Terengganu Museum Board at a depth of 65 to 70cm, he told reporters after a visit by Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said and reporters to the cave yesterday.
Among the pieces of pottery are some bearing what resembles rock painting which researchers had dug up at sites of the Neolithic Age elsewhere in the country.Prior to this, the oldest human remains discovered were that of Perak Man, in Gua Gunung Runtuh, in 1991, in the Lenggong Valley of Ulu Perak. The find was the second in the Kenyir Lake area, the first one being in the Batu Tok Bidan Cave in 1975. Then this discovered skeleton is making up to a new name GANU MAN after the name of PERAK MAN
