Wednesday Rojak #11

No Comments

It’s an eclectic mix of culture and archaeology in this week’s edition of Wednesday Rojak. Here’s some of the post from the blogosphere that caught my eye during the past week:

  • The Washington Post has some tips on visiting Cambodia’s Angkor on a budget by visiting during the rainy season in When it Rains, You Score.
  • Read a traditional Cambodian folk tale, Lord Keo and the Cow God.
  • New Mandala features an interview with Cambodia scholar, Emeritus Professor David Chandler.
  • Read about the oldest mosque in Indonesia, the Ampel Mosque in East Java…
  • while in West Java, we read about the Penetaran Temple, which dates back to Majapahit times.
  • And finally, in an off-tangent note, features a first-hand account of Anthropologists in the Military.

In this series of weekly rojaks (published on Wednesdays) I’ll feature other sites in the blogosphere that are of related to archaeology in Southeast Asia. Got a recommendation for the next Wednesday rojak? Email me!
