MALACCA: A historian claims to have discovered skeletal remains of what is believed to be a larger-than-usual man in a cave in Pulau Upeh, off the coast here.
Mohd Fuad Khusari M. Said, who was appointed by the Malacca government to search for new historical sites, said he discovered some bones partially exposed above the ground in Pulau Upeh.
He also found two other unusually large graves some 1.2km outside the cave.
The graves measuring about 5m by 0.5m are located about 15m to 20m away from each other.
