Overview

Written as a travelogue, Surface Collection: Archaeological Travels in Southeast Asia tackles the most pressing issues of cultural heritage management in an engaging and accessible way. In each chapter the author makes the past relevant to the present through his encounters with archaeological sites. While the book's anecdotes are associated primarily with the Philippines and Indonesia, they will be of interest to a broad audience because of the stories they tell-from a decaying national museum in Manila, to the search for traces of the thousands of Communists killed in Bali following the 1965 attempted coup, to the discovery of a bottle of perfume found among the personal effects of Indonesian ex-president Sukarno.
