I have visited Lenggong Valley, its archaeological Gallery and the major archaeological sites at least three times in the past year, since Lenggong Valley was inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Site.

But for anyone who is interested in archaeology, and particularly in the Perak Man and Perak Woman, there’s a lot of information and minute details to be acquired at the Lenggong Archaeological Gallery, that one has to spend a lot more time, and make even more trips to the town.

I have written about the archaeological sites in a previous post, Lenggong Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site, but this one focuses on the Archaeological Gallery only. Besides the many artifacts, it also has a chronology of the nomination process of obtaining the inscription as UNESCO World Heritage Site, including the nomination dossier.

One thought on “Lenggong Archaeological Gallery

  1. The Orang Asli of Lanoh and the Negrito tribes are descendants of the Perak Man, whose skeleton will soon be returned to Lenggong.
