This edition of rojak is an eclectic mix of tantalizing speculations about the hobbit’s role in linguistics, videos from Java and lego archaeology.
I might be away, but that didn’t stop me from preparing this edition of the Wednesday Rojak beforehand! Up this week:
More hobbit thoughts:
- Suvrat Kher wonders if the Hobbit was our ancestor.
- Julien Riel-Salvatore writes about the Hobbit wrists and new directions in the interpretation of the associated stone tools.
- MumbaiGirl posts about sunrises and elephants at Borobudur.
- A college history and geography tour visits the temples of My Son.
- Eon and Chantell’s round-the-world trip also brings them the My Son sanctuary and the ancient town of Hoi An.
In this series of weekly rojaks (published on Wednesdays) Iâ€™ll feature other sites in the blogosphere that are of related to archaeology in Southeast Asia. Got a recommendation for the next Wednesday rojak? Email me
