SUNGAI PETANI: The discovery of ancient shipwrecks in Kedah may force a rewrite of South-East Asian history, making the Malaysian settlement the oldest in the region.

These shipwrecks, now 5m to 10m underground, may rewrite anthropological history as they are said to be older than Cambodia’s Angkor Wat by about 2,000 years. The Angkor Wat is said to be more than 1,000 years old.
