The ruins of an ancient village and a burial complex have been found in the Merangin Geopark in Jambi, Indoniesia.

“We cannot yet guess the age of this ancient grave complex but from what residents of Air Batu village have said, the ruins are located in the original location of their ancestors’ initial settlement when they came to the region hundreds of years ago,” he said.

Villagers said that according to stories handed down from generations, the ancestors had moved the location of the village twice, before settling in the current Air Batu village location, two kilometers from the boundary of the Merangin Geopark.
