(JAVA) On the Trail of Our Ancestor Field Trip, Surabaya - Solo

The Java island has been the home of humans since 2 million years ago. Our ancestors have roamed this island for million years. In this field trip, we'll learn how they live, how they adapt, and how they migrate, and how they survive the changes in nature.

In this field trip, we'll be visiting several stop sites, related to the history and evolution of human. We'll see Pithecanthropus Mojokertensis, Pithecanthropus Erectus, Meganthropus Palaejavanicus and Homo Wajakensis, the ancestor of Java modern mankind. The explanation will be carried out directly on the field, with a hands-on discussion with the field trip leader. The audience will be also guided to local tourist destinations in Surabaya, Tulungagung, Sangiran, and Solo.
