Archive of news reports related to the archaeology and heritage of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma). Myanmar represents the western edge of “Southeast Asia”, bordering Bangladesh and India to the west, and China, Laos and Thailand to its east. Myanmar’s most famous archaeological sites are the Pyu Cities of Halin, Sri Ksetra and Beikthano, and the massive temple complex of Bagan. Other notable sites include the Padalin Caves in Shan State and Mrauk U in Rakhine State.
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 Myanma, although when I am made aware of stories in this and other languages I try to index them.
