Malaysian archaeologists find complete Neolithic skeletons: report
Archaeologists have found two groups of complete Neolithic human remains in peninsular Malaysia and on Borneo island that may better explain prehistoric human life, reports said Friday.
Archaeologists say the remains are more than 3,000 years old and were found within two months of each other, in prehistoric burial grounds surrounded by ceremonial beads, pottery, shells and animal bones, the Sun daily reported.
"These remains are very important as the skeletons are almost fully
complete," Mokhtar Saidin, head of the Malaysian Centre for Archaeological
Research told the paper.
