Welcome to PPAG

A very warm welcome to the Centre for Global Archaeological Research, Universiti Sains Malaysia. The Centre for Global Archaeological Research was established in 1995, after nearly a decade of systematic research, discoveries and publications. 

The Centre is an expansion of a core multi-disciplinary group of scholars who have been engaged in research into sites in Lenggong, Perak, which have yielded data important for information on early man, culture sequence and the development of material culture. 

The crowning achievement of the discovery of Kota Tampan, a 74,000 year old intact Palaeolithic stone tool workshop, which was later supplemented by the discovery of the Perak Man, a 10,000 year old skeleton found in Gua Gunung Runtuh, in the Lenggong valley. The Perak Man is, thus far, the earliest most complete skeleton in Southeast Asia. During this decade, research was extended to include sites in Bukit Bunuh in Perak, Tingkayu, Balambangan, Samang Buat, Mansuli, Melanta Tutup, Bukit Kamin, Bukit Tengkorak in Sabah and Bukit Sarang, Niah and Bau in Sarawak. 

The establishment of the Centre has allowed this research group to be extended to include other scholars with different complementary specialisations. The Centre has also been able to extend affiliations with institutions from regional countries and throughout the world.

We would like you to join us, to be part of this journey.

Please review the admission requirements and contact us with any questions or for additional information.
