Ivor H. N. Evans (1886-1957) was a British anthropologist, ethnographer and archaeologist who lived and worked in what is now Malaysia, including a brief period as a colonial administrator in 1910-11. This volume, which was originally published in 1927, consists of various papers on Malay beliefs, Malay technology, tribal groups, and some of the antiquities of the Peninsula. It was intended as a companion to Studies in Religion, Folk-lore and Custom in B.N. Borneo and the Malay Peninsula (1923), which gave the results, up to the date of publication, of the author's research into folklore and kindred traditions within the area. This text provides a wealth of additional information, including sections on neolithic implements, cave dwellers, and early bronze and iron tools. It will remain of value to anyone with an interest in the Malaysian culture and the colonial period.
