1 Comment

This Christmas edition of the Wednesday Rojak brings us to Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia for some ancient temples, royal architecture, hobbits and the Shan:

  • Andy Brouwer features an article by Heritage Watch on Protecting Cambodia’s Treasures.
  • Chris Miller sets poetry to Angkoran sculpture in When Sculpture was King.
  • Matt brings us to Thailand’s royal palaces and monatery in Bangkok’s Royal Bling.
  • Greg Laden blogs about a new paper published on our favourite Hobbit.
  • Read an Indonesian article about the Majapahit-era shrine, Candi Bajangratu.
  • Music blogger Deni Bonet spends a hot morning in Sukhothai.
  • Andy (no relation to the previous Andy) reflects on the impermanence of Southeast Asian capitals in Moving Mueang.
  • While in London, the New Mandala reports from a conference on the Shan people in Burma, with details of some archaeology papers presented there.

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!
