More than 200 ancient relics and artifacts were discovered by chance, scattered on the floor of a cave in Krabi province, across Phang Nga Bay from Phuket, on Saturday.
Found by a local man in Kuan Wei Dang Cave in Khlong Thom district, south of Krabi Town, the pieces included ancient ceramics, axeheads, and stone tools, thought to be more than 3,500 years old.
There are many different ceramic pieces and some ancient stoneware with cutting edges, including a two to five-inch-long stone hatchet. said Lerthai Jullangkol, chief administrator of Pru Din Na OrBorTor.
Term Jansongsang, Pru Din Na OrBorTor president, said plans were underway to create a museum to display ancient relics found in the area. It would be another learning place for local students and other people wanting to know about this region’s ancient history, he said.
