In Khao Khom Cave in Khuan Kalong district, people keeps and tools thought to date again ten thousand years have been discovered.

The grotto, which is one of the longest in this southern state and has the highest variety of caves, was the subject of a job led by renowned spelunker Kamponsak Sassadee.

Their primary surveys found signs of human life at the doors, according to Mr Kamponsak.

The discoveries include skeleton fragments, including jawbones and almost best lower molars, buried beneath piles of shells.

Mr. Kamponsak claimed that the site may be an old cemetery because more human remains were discovered as he dug. He added that there were more than 10 body at this location.

Ancient resources were discovered scattered throughout the cave house as a result of further investigation.

The grotto, equipped with natural light from light wheel openings in the main hall, water sources from mountain streams, and meals from fish and crab, is believed to have been a house for humans living in the Stone Age, or at least 10, 000 years before, he said.

He claimed that the cave’s span has not yet been determined, adding that it was discovered to be much longer than initially anticipated.

The team was led by Mr. Kamponsak on Wednesday, along with representatives from the provincial tourism power business, Satun College of Agriculture and Technology lecturers, and representatives of the media.

According to Mr. Kamponsak, the group has contracted with the Fine Arts Department to study the discovery, and his team will continue to explore the grotto after the rainy season.

The Satun College of Agriculture and Technology’s teacher, Nartchai Tuentim, claimed the institution had fenced off the areas to stop locals who come there for water supplies from destroying the cave.
