Beads, names, and tattoos. We give them all a Southeast Asian slant in this week’s rojak!
- Crewcut75 takes a walk through the Prambanan temples, which were damaged by an earthquake in 2006
- Andy discusses an old reference by King Mongkut of Siam who complains about the inconsistency of the name Phetchaburi
- We also continue along the Angkor trail by A Mom’s Diary, this time to Angkor Thom, Ta Keo and Ta Prohm
- If you weren’t in Australia to catch the presentation at ANU on Thailand/Cambodia Border Conflicts, Andrew Walker posts the text of his presentation entitled: Phra Viharn: the dividing line in Thailand
- Alison in Cambodia talks a little about her research and show us some pre-Angkoran beads
- And if you’re going to get a tattoo, why not make it monumental? JJ shows off his tattoo inspired from the famous Hindu myth, the Churning of the Milk Sea, which is found in Angkor Wat.
In this series of weekly rojaks (published on Wednesdays) Iâ€™ll feature other sites in the blogosphere that are of related to archaeology in Southeast Asia or archaeology in general. Got a recommendation for the next Wednesday rojak? Email me!
