The Ethnology of the Malay Peninsula2

Nature volume 68, pages 298299 (30 July 1903) | Download Citation



THE scientific results of the Skeat expedition of 1899 to Siam and the Malay Peninsula have not yet been published, but a secondary result of that expedition was the return of Mr. Nelson Annandale to the same district in 1901. Sir William Turner suggested to Mr. Annandale that he should obtain measurements of the people of the Siamese Malay States, and the Edinburgh University gave him a grant for that purpose from the Moray Fund. Mr. H. C. Robinson joined Mr. Annandale, and together they made a most successful expedition, the results of which are now beginning to appear with praiseworthy promptitude, a result that is rendered possible through private munificence in Liverpool. The association of this expedition with the University of Liverpool augurs well for the spirit of that young institution, and we hope that it may continue to foster field work in ethnology.
