  • For this International Women’s Day, here’s an earthenware human figure from the Lopburi-Pa Sak culture, dated between 500BCE-200CE. It was hard to find a representation of a female in the archaeological record that wasn’t some kind of dancer. Maybe next year I should feature real people - there are plenty of women working in archaeology in this region, I just couldn’t get permission quickly enough for today’s post. This piece is on display at the Southeast Asian Ceramics Museum in Bangkok #southeastasianarchaeology #ceramics #earthenware #internationalwomensday #iwd2019 #iwd #thailand #femaleform

  • Repost from @surotohari: Stencil of a boomerang in Papua, unsurprisingly next door to Australia. The rock art in this part of Indonesia suggests some sort of contact between the peoples here and the indigenous Australians during prehistory #indonesia #boomerang #rockart #fakfak #westpapua #southeastasianarchaeology #australia #culturalexchange

  • Repost of Khao Klang Nai at Si Thep Historical Park from @kanokploeng. Over the past week an energy company announced plans to drill for oil just 100m away from the largest of these ruins, Khao Klang Nok. The company, ECO Orient Resources (Thailand), hasn’t backed down from its intention to drill for oil as of the writing of this post and if they succeed they will destroy any hope of putting Si Thep into the World Heritage list. Make some noise! We need to #savesithep #thailand #pertchabun #sithep #sithephistoricalpark #khaoklongnai #เขาคลังใน #southeastasianarchaeology #ศรีเทพ

  • A plan of Java’s Borobudur temple, probably drawn by Hermann Cornelius, a Dutch Engineer who was sent to uncover the remains of a rumoured temple by Thomas Stamford Raffles in the early 1800s. Raffles was then the governor of Java, and later on became the founder of Singapore in 1819. This plan is on display at the Asian Civilisations Museum as part of the Raffles in Southeast Asia exhibition happening until 28 April. #singapore #asiancivilisationsmuseum #britishmuseum #rafflesinsoutheastasia #indonesia #java #raffles #borobudur #architecture #southeastasianarchaeology
