The Peking Man (homo erectus, same as the Java Man) made the news last week for being older than previously thought – but what happened to his bones? This and more in this week’s Rojak.
- Take a peek into Malacca’s iconic red building, the Stadhuys, which is modelled after a now-no-longer-standing town hall in Horne, Holland.
- Farish A. Noor comments about Southeast Asia’s common history.
- Kazakhstan might very well be the birthplace of horse domestication.
- Find out about the layout of the Majapahit site of Bentang in North Lampung (in Indonesian, or the google-translated version here).
- Last week’s big news was about the Peking Man being older than previously thought, but do you know where the Peking Man is now?
- Finally, there’s a new web-based social network just for archaeologists. Check out the Archaeology Network.
In this series of weekly (at least, it tries to be weekly) rojaks (published on Wednesdays) Iâ€™ll feature other sites in the blogosphere that are related to archaeology in Southeast Asia. Got a recommendation for the next Wednesday rojak?Â Email me!
