  • Last day of our rock art tour in Krabi - there are a number of sites on the cliff faces in the Phangnga Bay, all overlooking the sea and located in little niches. #southeastasianarchaeology #krabi #thailand #rockart #dronie #boat #aoluk

  • Continuing on the rock art tour, we travelled to neighbouring Phang Nga province to visit a site that we knew about but didn’t have pictures of. The local community of Ban Hin Rom runs boat tours to the surrounding islands, including this site Ko Phra Ard Tao, which has several interesting pictures of dolphins, and a ‘treasure map’ - a series of line drawings found some 5-7 m off the floor. Here’s the footage from the drone climbing up the cliff face. #southeastasianarchaeology #phangnga #phangabay #thailand #rockart #drone #dronestagram #aerialphotography

  • Tham Phi Hua To (Cave of the Big-Head Ghost) in Krabi was one of the first sites I had to do a quick field recording in, as part of my MA research 10 years ago. It is a challenging site to record because of poor visibility and back then, I wasn’t quite prepared - my main camera ran out of batteries, as did my flash. My first photographs of this site was from my backup HP 5MP camera (yes they produced cameras back then) and were simply quite terrible. A decade later I am a bit older and wiser and finding stuff I missed out in my first run. #southeastasianarchaeology #krabi #thailand #rockart #thamphihuato #cave

This weekend I am Krabi visiting some of the rock art sites in this southern Thai province. Follow my journey on Instagram stories!

  • Reports by @ayubakry: crushed bricks, tiles and pigments awaiting analysis at the Centre for a Global Archaeological Research in Penang, Malaysia. I suppose the bricks are from the Bujang Valley sites in Kedah? #southeastasianarchaeology #malaysia #penang #archaeology #labwork #pigment #crushed #tiles #bricks #ppag #usm #fortcornwallis .

  • Repost by @wonderingwilson: Phra Prang Sam Yod in Lopburi province, probably a Bayon-style Hindu temple which was converted for Buddhist use during the reign of King Narai. Although these days it is better known as the Monkey Temple, for its new inhabitants #southeastasianarchaeology #thailand #lopburi #monkeytemple #phraprangsamyod #khmer #architecture #monkey

  • Row of Buddha’s from the 19th-century Wat Si Saket in Vientiane, Laos. The temple is one of the oldest in the city and houses a museum of Buddhist images. #vientiane #laos #watsisaket #buddhism #southeastasianarchaeology #sculpture #buddha #ancientcity #seatedbuddha

  • A Viking goblet! No, not really. This horned cup is one of the interesting pieces from the Nong Ratchawat Site in Suphan Buri, Thailand. The site is a Neolithic cemetery which was discovered in 2003. #southeastasianarchaeology #neolithic #ceramics #thailand #suphanburi #horned #nongratchawat #fineartsdepartment

  • Really cool research published in Nature today about new dates from rock art in East Kalimantan - 40,000 years - making it the oldest figurative art in the world and also similarly as old with art in nearby Sulawesi. Prehistoric people were far more active than we thought in Southeast Asia! #southeastasianarchaeology #southeastasianart #rockart #caveart #cavepaintings #indonesia #eastkalimantan #kalimantan

  • There are actually a few board games out in the market based on historical port cities in Southeast Asia: Malacca, Singapore and Hue! This slide was from a presentation at the recent Managing Urban Cultural Heritage conference in Penang. Have any of you played these games? #southeastasianarchaeology #boardgames #hue #vietnam #malacca #malaysia #singapore
