New ceramic data from East Kalimantan: Pottery chronology and the cord-marked and red-slipped sherds of Liang Abu's layer 2
Keywords:East Kalimantan, Pottery, Radiocarbon, Austronesian, Liang Abu
Archaeological research in the Liang Abu rock shelter (East Kalimantan) led to the discovery and analysis of a pottery assemblage, including red-slipped, cord-marked and incised pottery sherds, radiocarbon dated to 1672±21 BP and 1524±22 BP. In order to discuss our findings we undertook a reappraisal of the pottery material and associated radiocarbon datations from archaeological sites on Borneo Island. This provided us with an appropriate framework for a comparative analysis, introducing Kalimantan inland regions to the technological network of Neolithic Island South East Asia.
