Indah Asikin Nurani, Delta Bayu Murti

Abstract


The findings of three Homo sapiens skeletons in Kidang Cave could provide new informations in treating corpse of prehistoric human. The three skeletals were found in different stratigraphic position, and all of them have different skeletal positions, and different association findings. It provides new insight of the burial, which is known by the human inhabitants of Kidang Cave in treating corpses. The question arises as to whether these three skeletons were from different communities which inhabit the cave of different time periods, or the Kidang Cave is populated by some communities or races. The answer to this research question will be elaborated in paleoanthropological and geo-archaeological studies as well as archaeological findings. The method used is descriptive analytical, so it is expected to contribute to the prehistoric burial system. The results of geo-archaeological and paleoanthropological studies show the existence of two stages of the shelter based on the findings of three skeletons with different identification and pathology.
