Abstract

An early study at the Chawan Cave, Hulu Kelantan was started by Peacock in 1964 where he had reported the findings of Hoabinhian's culture. Based on his studies, Peacock argued that Chawan Cave was used by hunters and food collectors (or hunter-gatherers) as a workshop for making and forming pebble tools. Subsequently, the research at Chawan Cave was conducted by Adi Taha in 1993 and he reported the trial trench and excavated that Peacock had done clearly. Based on the survey, Adi Taha’s opinion is Chawan Cave has the potential to be reviewed based on the size and location of the Chawan Cave. By using a systematic and scientific approach, an archaeological excavation research was conducted by a team of researchers from the Institute of Malay World and Civilization (ATMA), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in April 2017. Based on the excavation that has been carried out, many artifacts have been found, such as lithic tools, animal bones, and freshwater shells. The lithic tools that are found are as such; sumatralith stone tools, hammerstone, pebbles tools and lots of debitage. Based on the findings of the excavation, it is in line with Peacock's opinion, in which Chawan Cave has been used by the prehistoric society as a workshop to produce the lithic tools.
