Ban Na Di Excavation, 1981-1982

This is a professionally made documentary on the excavation of Ban Na Di. This Bronze and Iron Age site was the first to show that the claims for early dates at nearby Ban Chiang for the initial takeup of bronze and iron had to be set aside.

On the right as you enter the village of Doyo Lama, 6km west of Sentani, you’ll see the entrance to Situs Megalitik Tutari. This mysterious hillside site comprises various arrangements of rocks and stones, and dozens of rock paintings of fish, turtles, crocodiles and lizards. They are of uncertain age but still considered sacred by the villagers. The paintings are in six different fenced areas, all reached by a 1km concrete path. The lake views are also worthwhile.

Motif Megalitik Tutari harus dilestarikan, salah satu caranya yaitu dengan menghidupkannya kembali pada seni masa kini termasuk pada seni kontemporer dan dapat dijadikan sebagai inspirasi ekonomi kreatif. Ini adalah bagian dari kontribusi penelitian arkeologi pada ruang lingkup SDGs atau Sustainable Development Goals disebut juga Tujuan Pembangunan Berkelanjutan.
