Plant Use in Southeast Asia

Hello and welcome on this website !


This site is a video platform which hosts two types of videos recorded in the frame of research projects in archaeology, ethnoarchaeology and ethnography :

      1. Videos of ethnoarchaeological investigation

      Records of contemporary practices by Pala’wan indigenous people who live in the Highlands and the foothills of the Makagwaq valley, in Brooke’s Point Municipality, the Philippines.

      2. Videos of archaeological experiments

      The experimental reproduction of these activities with stone tools made of red jasper, replicas of the archaeological artefacts discovered in Pleistocene and Holocene sites of the region, for instance in Tabon Cave. The objective of these experiments was to build up a reference collection of use-traces on stone tools resulting from processing Southeast Asian wild plants.
