  • Hong Kong has a number of rock art sites - most of them coastal petroglyphs on various islands. They are thought to date to the Bronze age due to the similarity of designs with contemporary ceramics vessels. This is a replica of the site at Big Wave Bay in Hong Kong Island. #hongkong #china #petroglyph #rockart #bigwavebay #museumofhistory #hongkonarchaeology #southeastasianarchaeology #bronzeage

  • Pre-Qin painted terracotta vessels from the Chinese Spring and Autumn period (771-476 BCE). The first one is a Gui (ritual food vessel) and the second is a Fang Hu (ritual wine vessel), both currently on display at the Bangkok National Museum as part of the Qin Shi Huang Terracotta Warriors exhibition. The spiral designs are very reminiscent of the iconic Ban Chiang pots (which are older) - no doubt why they are display. The exhibition is on until December 15. #bangkok #thailand #bangkoknationalmuseum #nationalmuseumbangkok #qinshihuang #terracotta #banchiang #springandautumnperiod #china #ceramics #chinesearchaeology #southeastasianarchaeology #baoji

  • A selection of artefacts found in Fort Cornwallis, Penang. This is from the old archaeological museum. Lots of colonial period stuff here. In more recent excavations, they've found two cannons. #penang #malaysia #fortcornwallis #georgetown #historicalarchaeology #colonialperiod #malaysianarchaeology #southeastasianarchaology
