Title: The Pain Haka burial ground in Flores: Indonesian evidence for a shared neolithic cosmology in Southeast Asia
Date: 2016
Source: Antiquity
Abstract: Recent excavations at the coastal cemetery of Pain Haka on Flores have revealed evidence of burial practices similar to those documented in other parts of Southeast Asia. Chief among these is the use of pottery jars alongside other forms of container for the interment of the dead. The dating of the site combined with the fact that this burial practice is present over such a wide geographic area suggests a widespread belief system during the Neolithic period across much of Southeast Asia.
