In this edition of Rojak, we take a look at some of the cultural and archaeological heritage of Malaysia and Indonesia:

  • The Treasure of Java is a collection of links and information about Javanese heritage and history.
  • Raja Iskandar heads up to the heartland of Perak to learn about the gendang (a Malay drum), and its use in royal court music.
  • And in this slightly dated post, Tesselar brings us to the Bujang Valley Archaeological Museum.

In this series of weekly rojaks (published on Wednesdays) I’ll feature other sites in the blogosphere that are related to Southeast Asia and archaeology in general. Got a recommendation for the next Wednesday rojak? Email me!
