Gunadi Mum, an Indonesian archaeologist (foreground), sifts through dirt holding the remains of meals eaten in Gua Tengkorak 2,500 to 8,000 years ago: bones of deer, boars, turtles, and fish, as well as mollusk shells. His colleague Nasruddin works in the pit. These leftovers show that Gua Tengkorak was one of the few painted caves that was probably later inhabited by other communities.
