EP 2 Tomb Hunters

Charles and Raymond Goh are brothers and history buffs who play a pivotal role in uncovering forgotten parts of Singapore’s story.

Through lost relics in dense forests and ancient tombs in Bukit Brown cemetery, the brothers seek to bridge the gap between the past and present. In reconnecting descendants to their ancestors, the brothers seek to help people trace their lineage and understand more about their family’s history.

Aptly named “Tomb Hunters”, the Goh brothers are no strangers to lost tombs and the stories behind them. In understanding the importance of heritage and its relationship to the country’s identity, they aim to share their discoveries and knowledge, hoping to generate interest amongst Singaporeans to step forward and be involved.

This episode is an exploration into the amazing journey of tomb hunting with the Goh brothers. Through their infectious passion and never-say-die attitude, history will never be forgotten or neglected.

It was the Brownies biggest effort to showcase the history and heritage of Bukit Brown to the public. Held over two weekends from 29 Jun to 7Jul 2013 at Chui Huay Lim Club, there were 18 talks in Chinese and English, and an exhibition with more than 60 bilingual infographic panels and exhibits. It was truly a labour of love and passion by many volunteers to raise the awareness of this hidden heritage site that they have uncovered at their own backyard. For those who missed this exhibition, here is a virtual exhibition website, again done by volunteers, to see the exhibits again and listen to the excellent talks, and appreciate Singapore first World Monument Fund 2014 watch site - Bukit Brown - Our Roots, Our Future
