While Singapore now has its first archaeological research unit, veterans said much more groundwork needs to be done to take the field further.

The Archaeological Unit of the Nalanda-Sriwijaya Centre at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (Iseas) was inaugurated by former president S R Nathan last month.

The unit’s three members for now are Associate Professor John Miksic, 64, who heads it, Assistant Professor Goh Geok Yian, 39, and Mr Lim Chen Sian, 36.
