This Christmas edition of the Wednesday Rojak brings us to Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia for some ancient temples, royal architecture, hobbits and the Shan:
- Andy Brouwer features an article by Heritage Watch on Protecting Cambodia’s Treasures.
- Chris Miller sets poetry to Angkoran sculpture in When Sculpture was King.
- Matt brings us to Thailand’s royal palaces and monatery in Bangkok’s Royal Bling.
- Greg Laden blogs about a new paper published on our favourite Hobbit.
- Read an Indonesian article about the Majapahit-era shrine, Candi Bajangratu.
- Music blogger Deni Bonet spends a hot morning in Sukhothai.
- Andy (no relation to the previous Andy) reflects on the impermanence of Southeast Asian capitals in Moving Mueang.
- While in London, the New Mandala reports from a conference on the Shan people in Burma, with details of some archaeology papers presented there.
