At least 50 new sites, rich in prehistoric artifacts, have been found in Indonesia. They are yeilding interesting items such as stone age rings made of green jasper.

“We found stone relics made from green jaspers in the form of rings,” team leader Sudjatmiko said Saturday.”We believe the stones are from the Neolithic period, or the new stone age.” He added the stones, which were prehistoric man-made pieces, had been found near a waterfall and in rice paddies in the village.

Based on these findings, Sudjatmiko went on, the team concluded that humans at that time began creating aesthetic items, in addition to other items they made that served specific functions.
