    Adam Brumm says: "We have uncovered archaeological evidence for an ancient population of 'Ice Age' hunter-gatherers that inhabited Leang Burung 2 rock-shelter around 50,000 years ago. This early 'culture', so far as it can be discerned from stone tools and associated faunal remains, is strikingly different to that of the modern human foragers who were creating sophisticated cave art in nearby sites by 40,000 years ago, perhaps suggesting the first inhabitants of this site may not only have been members of a different culture but also a distinct human species."
