LATE PLEISTOCENE TO MID-HOLOCENE COASTAL AND INLAND INTERACTION IN THE GUNUNG SEWU KARST, YOGYAKARTA
AbstractThe Gunung Sewu karst in the Southern Mountains of Java Island has specific characteristics from a geoarchaeological viewpoint. Cross disciplinary approaches utilising Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and geographical and geological information, are very useful for examining correlations between site distributions and geophysical processes. The geographical and geological aspects of the region contribute information for understanding prehistoric interactions between coastal and inland communities. GIS technology was applied in an examination of terrain, the karst landscape, and the distributions of cave sites.
