Archive of news reports related to the archaeology and heritage of East Timor or Timor-Leste, located in the island of Timor in the Indonesian archipelago. East Timor is the newest nation-state in Southeast Asia, having been annexed by Indonesia in 1976 and regained independence in 2002. As a new nation, the practice and regulation of archaeology is still in its infancy. Archaeology in East Timor has been investigated mostly by archaeologists from Australia.
The news reports indexed below usually link to external sites that were active at the time of posting; sometimes websites may be temporarily down or may have reorganised their underlying architecture or have even closed down – in these cases the links may not be available. Most of the news articles archived are in English; this is largely because I do not have a working competency in Portuguese or Tetum, although when I am made aware of stories in this and other languages I try to index them.
