Wednesday Rojak #57

This week in rojak we take you on a virtual tour of Angkor and a Jesuit House and see how archaeology is very much like science fiction.

  • Knight Carl visits the Jesuit House of 1730 in Cebu, Philippines, a Spanish colonial house that has seen nearly 300 years of history.
  • Dan at Archaeolog reasons why archaeologists should embrace the image of Indiana Jones, rather than be embarrased by it in Archaeology, Science Fiction and Pop Culture.
  • For those of you in Facebook, lend your support to the cause, Save the Majapahit Trowulan Site!, a site which has been damaged in large part due to the sheer incompetence of the government.
  • If you can’t go to Angkor, then perhaps Le Grand Tour d’Angkor can bring the stunning temples to your desktop. This website gives you a preview of the virtual tours you can take through the CD. Pick up a CD for yourself and visit 120 sites from the Angkor Archaeological Park and beyond.

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