Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Institute of the Malay World and Civilisation kicks off a two-day seminar today to develop a blueprint for research and tourism development at the 1,700 site in Kedah, the northern peninsular Malaysian state. Bujang Valley was in the news recently when a team from Universiti Sains Malaysia discovered evidence for iron smelting last month.
