“We hope to obtain a picture of how ancient humans, both pre-modern humans and modern humans, were able to reach Australasia … and develop a historiography about the spread of modern humans, and even pre-modern humans, in the region of island Southeast Asia and also Australia” (Dr Thomas Sutikna, archaeologist)
