A volunteer for the Fine Arts Department has discovered what he believes are apple-snail fossils, ancient human skeletons, and prehistoric artefacts in a Krabi cave.

Niwat Wattanayommanaporn said on Tuesday that the Fine Arts Department had already been informed of the discovery. 

According to him, the fossils, skeletons and artefacts were found inside Sa Yuan Thong Cave about 100 metres from the entrance. This cave is located in Krabi’s Ao Luk district. 

“I have surveyed the cave alongside local experts,” Niwat said, “Now, locals believe the site has the potential to become an attraction.”
