Abstract: The discoveries of several types of Neolithic stone tools and tripod legs potteries in Kampung Kubang Pak Amin, Pasir Mas have contributed a new data for prehistoric archaeological research in Kelantan. Before this, there is no evidence of Neolithic settlement which located near to the coastal area ever been found by archaeologist who studies prehistoric in Kelantan. The findings of several artifacts such as polished stone axe and adze, tembeling knife and tripod leg potteries indicated that the settlement was a Neolithic settlement located along Kelantan River banks and situated near the coastal area. The discovery of other artefacts in this site is also interesting in which among them are the finding of semi-circular shouldered stone axe that is also sometimes associated with coastal communities and the finding of tripod legs that were found in abundance in Jenderam Hilir and Gua Berhala in Kodiang. The out of context discovery in Kampung Kubang Pak Amin has enabled further research to be conducted in the nearby areas to gather data concerning the dating of the Neolithic Age in this area. The findings of pottery fragments on the river bank of Sat River could be an indication of coastal community settlements in Kelantan that produced pottery. Based on the relative dating, the Neolithic site of Kampung Kubang Pak Amin is believed to have been inhabited by the Neolithic people between 3700-3000 BP.
