The Centre for Archaeological Research Malaysia, established in 1995, was officially launched by the Honorable Minister of Higher Education Malaysia in 2009 as the Centre for Global Archaeological Research (CGAR) in recognition of its global contribution. CGAR is the prominent multi-disciplinary archaeological research centre in Malaysia, and the only one in the country which offers a minor package in archaeology at Universiti Sains Malaysia. Along with academic and research focus, PPAG also offers consultancy and analytical laboratory services for various institutions locally and internationally.
