Sitting on ancient ruins

KOTA TINGGI: Since they moved there in 1975, settlers of Felda Bukit Aping Timur in Kota Tinggi have had the nagging feeling there is more to their land than meets the eye.

They believe they might be sitting on the ruins of an early civilisation.

They have unearthed large quantities of pots, jars and other artifacts while working their smallholdings, not to mention the “strange events” that have occurred.
