Pleistocene archaeological sites in developing countries across Asia: Research and management Other events...
Abstract

There are a number of challenges that face the cultural heritage management of prehistoric sites dating back to the Pleistocene. Conservation, which includes research, and protection of such sites, requires approaches that are uniquely applicable to this context. Discussion will revolve around four Pleistocene sites across Asia: the fossil hominin sites of Dmanisi, Georgia, and Sangiran, Java, Indonesia, and two further sites in the Philippines, Rizal, Kalinga Province, and Callao, Peñablanca, Cagayan Province. While each site has its own unique set of elements, all of these are located within developing countries, a key factor that has an impact on how they are managed.The archaeological research that has been generated and continues to be carried out in these four sites as well as the efforts to manage other aspects such as protection, presentation and dissemination of information, interpretation and creation of value for the public, involvement and engagement of the locals will also be examined.
