The excavation of the cave of Laang Spean, in North-West Cambodia, searched since 2009 by a French-Cambodian team led by H. Forestier and H. Sophady, has unearthed many tools attributed to the Hoabian culture (30 000 to 5000 years old). Thousands of animal bones have also been collected. Their study makes it possible, from now on, to know the species present in this cave but most of all to document the diversity of the behaviors of the men in Paleolithic Age through the exploitation of the territories, the subsistence economies as well as how the area was operated.
