We’ve got a number of features in this week’s Rojak, we take a look at some Cambodian museums, remember the passing of an Indonesian paleontologist and review the early states of Southeast Asia.
- The Chicago Reader has an article on Ty Tim, an archivist at the Cambodian American Heritage Museum.
- Andy Brouwer blogs about the new Angkor National Museum that is opening in December.
- Tokyohead has an excellent series of pictures and posts about the various temples of Angkor, like this one on Bantaey Srei, or the Citadel of Women.
- Learn about the Cambodian Silkworm Festival, held during the day of the full moon in September from the Institute for Khmer Traditional Textiles
- In the regular Indonesians in Focus series, Barrie from Planet Mole posts an obituary of preeminent Indonesian paleontologist Teuku Jacob, one of the most vocal critics to the homo floresiensis-as-a-new species theory.
- Paul K. Manansala gives us an overview of the Early States in Southeast Asia.
