Kelantan is a state rich in its own history by contributing information about prehistoric times until now. Ulu Kelantan has its own significant record of biodiversity and this can throw light on the exploitation of resources by prehistoric people. Using a systematic and scientific approach, the study was conducted by a team of researchers from the Institute of Malay and World Civilizations (ATMA), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in April 2018 in Kelew Cave. Based on the findings of this study, the research team was able to discover cave paintings and surface discoveries such as stone tools, pottery and ceramics. Thus, the discovery of this surface further reinforces that the Kelew Cave was once inhabited by prehistoric peoples to the indigenous peoples. This study will also discuss the discovery of artifacts and their relationship with the prehistoric community in Kelew Cave.
