This year’s World Rock Art course jointly organised by Trent & Peak Archaeology of the University of Nottingham and Universiti Sains Malaysia is going to be slightly different from last year’s: it’s going to be a full-fledged field school, with a substantial portion spent in the Lenggong Valley of Perak (home of the Perak Man and prehistory central in Peninsular Malaysia) working on actual rock art. It’s a unique opportunity to get your hands on some real-world experience in rock art, archaeology and Malaysia.
More information about the course can be found here, and you can read about my experiences at last year’s World Rock Art Course here. The prices listed on the site might seem a little high, but if there’s enough interest from local residents a subsidised price can be arranged. To get an idea of how much you may have to fork out, my course fees came up to about RM600 for the five days; but the fee excluded accomodation. At this point of time I understand it’s hard to come up with a fee structure for local/Southeast Asian residents until there’s a better idea of the numbers interested, so if you think you’re up for it please register your interest with Barry at firstname.lastname@example.org
