LENGGONG: One of South-East Asia’s landmark archaeological sites is in danger of losing its coveted Unesco heritage status unless something is done fast.

Archaeologists are afraid that the Unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) certification for the archaeological heritage of Lenggong Valley in the Hulu Perak district could be revoked as the sites have been neglected.
