Wednesday Rojak #51: Churches, Temples and Circular Earthworks

This week in Rojak we feature churches in the Philippines, temples in Java and get a bird’s eye view of some circular earthworks in Cambodia.

  • Tim Hannigan puts the pedal to the metal as he motorcycles to the temples of the Singosari Kingdom
  • The border dispute around Preah Vihear may soon be coming to a resolution, but what’s it like down in the trenches?
  • For those keeping up with Malaysian politics, the state of Perak is in the midst of major political turmoil from the overthrow of the local government – but what does this mean for the aboriginal orang asli?
  • The Heritage of Cebu features the architecture of the Cebu Cathedral from the 1900s to today
  • And Alison thinks out loud about the Circular Earthwork Sites of Cambodia

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