In this edition of Rojak, we take a look at some of the cultural and archaeological heritage of Malaysia and Indonesia:
- The Treasure of Java is a collection of links and information about Javanese heritage and history.
- Raja Iskandar heads up to the heartland of Perak to learn about the gendang (a Malay drum), and its use in royal court music.
- And in this slightly dated post, Tesselar brings us to the Bujang Valley Archaeological Museum.
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!
