  1. I would assume its targeted at everyone e.g. Aussies etc, as some of the convenors are from Oz. I guess they may do a package without accommodation for Msians.
    The big question is……….. will they be able to do anything about preserving Gua Tambun paintings?????

  2. Hi
    Thanks for comments re: the rock-art course. We are trying to find a sponsor to subsidise Malaysian student attendance. If we get enough fee payers from elsewhere in the world then the course can subsidise one or two places for other ASEAN students too. If the course still floats your boat and you are a Malaysian student at a Malysian University then get in touch with me via the web page and I’ll keep you up dated on progress etc. As always with this sort of thing I can’t make promises but we are doing our best.
