Ethnoarchaeologists might find this site useful, perhaps? The Center for Ethnic Studies and Development at Chiang Mai University has a website with a database of downloadable articles about ethnic populations in Southeast Asia. While there is a distinct Thai focus in the site, about 40% of the 12,000 articles are in English. An e-museum also features video clips of some local ethnic cultures. (from New Mandala)

After missing the last two weeks’ installments, Wednesday Rojak is back again this week for a mishmash of Southeast Asia and related-to-archaeology posts.
- PensÃ©e Libre takes us to the Banteay Srei in Angkor (site is in French)
- The Ethnographer’s Note posts a soon-to-be published paper by Edward M. Bruner entitled “The Ethnographer, Tourist in Indonesia”.
- Backpackers Mal and Pam make their stopover to Laos and Cambodia.
- While Jeffrey visits the Laos National Museu, finding it a little short on artifacts, but not on scope.
- Lilie Down Under posts something from her two nights in Sukhothai.
- While PhD candidate Alison shows us how salt is produced in Ban Non Wat.
- Katie visits Candi Borobudur in Java.
- Jim visits the lesser-known Angkor temple at Koh Ker.
In this series of weekly rojaks (published on Wednesdays) Iâ€™ll feature other sites in the blogosphere that are related to Southeast Asia and archaeology in general. Got a recommendation for the next Wednesday rojak? Email me!
