Abris sous roche

Abris sous roche is a cave resembling a rock niche that is used by humans as a place to live. Research on the culture of Abris sous roche was also carried out by van Stein Callenfels in 1928-1931 in Goa Lawu near Sampung, Ponorogo (Madiun). The tools that are found are mostly made of bones so they are called Sampung Bone Culture. In the Besuki area (East Java), van Heekeren also found a Sumatran ax and a short ax. Abris sous roche was also found in the area of ​​Timor and Rote by Alfred Buhler who discovered the flakes culture of stemmed chalcedony and this was thought to be a legacy of the Papuan Melanesoide. The results of the Abris sous roche culture are also found in Lamancong (South Sulawesi) which is commonly called the Toala culture. 

Toala culture is found in a cave called Goa Leang Pattae and the core of this culture is flakes and pebble. In addition to Toala, experts also discovered the culture of Bacson-Hoabinh and Bandung in Indonesia. Bacson-Hoabinh is thought to be the center of Indonesia's prehistoric culture and consists of two kinds of culture, namely the pebble culture (bone tools coming from the west road) and the flakes culture (coming through the east road). Meanwhile, the Bandung cultural research was carried out by van Koenigswald in Padalarang, North Bandung, Cicalengka, Banjarab Soreang, and west of Cililin. Culture was discovered in the form of flakes called microliths, broken pottery and bronze objects.
