I came across this site while cross-referencing web sources for the defaced cave art post uploaded a few days ago. Caves of Malaysia is run by Liz Price, a speleologist and is a great resource to the caves in Malaysia, not just for archaeology but for geological, floral and faunal value too. It’s added on the permanent links collection.
