Archaeological discoveries over time have helped answer questions about previous cultures and environmental and historical events which took place over thousands and thousands of years ago. Rock art, as part of the archaeological record, is a documented moment in history which can help us to reveal details of a past, often long forgotten.
The Great Papuan Plateau is a karst plateau of mid-altitude, in dense and very remote tropical forest between the Southern Highlands and the Gulf lowlands of Papua New Guinea. The barely-touched terrain gives way to unexplored caves and undiscovered, underground drainage systems.
To date, and due to its remote location, there have been no archaeological investigations conducted on the Plateau.
