Muzium Negara - Perak Man

The previous blog was the first one on the National Museum, Muzium Negara, Early History gallery, and generally showed cave burials. This blog is on Perak Man.

Perak Man is the most complete human skeleton found in Malaysia. It was found in Gua Gunung Runtuh in Perak, and is about 11,000 years old.

I assume this is the real skeleton and not a replica, as it is in a show case with temperature and humidity control, making it hard to take photos. 2 weeks after I posted this blog, I read that this skeleton IS that of Perak Man.

See other blog on Perak Man and his previous visit to Muzium Negara.
