Community-based tourism in Sukhothai

No Comments

Archaeology isn’t about ancient ruins and dead remains. Very often, the living still inhabit archaeological sites. The Nation features a project by Naresuan University to document the living traditions and lifestyle of the people inhabiting Sukohthai, Thailand’s first capital.

Website about ethnic populations in Southeast Asia

No Comments

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)
