The Wooden Fort
On the 17th of July 2013, I was one of 18 participants which comprised facilitating teachers and local school children attending a site visit to Fort Alice, Sri Aman. The visit was conducted by Mike Boon and coordinated by Mr. Goh Kaw Sze. The aim of the visit was to give the school children a chance to see the structural core of the Fort before it was to be taken down completely.

Malay “Tomb”
The day’s events started with the mandatory safety briefing. We were each handed a hard hat and instructed to always keep in the designated zone clearly marked by security tapes. Then, we were brought to a freshly dug-up site at the front of the Fort and introduced to En. Mohd. Sherman, Curator from Jabatan Muzium Sarawak (JMS).

Dismantling Process
We were then given a brief induction into the Fort’s dismantling process by Conservators-on-site Mr. Eng Chee Kuan and Mr. Ooi Zhen Ning (both young graduates from Penang). They explained that during dismantling, every detail has to be recorded through sketches, drawings, photographs and videos so the Fort can be reassembled in the same manner.

Timber
Having learnt how the Fort is held up, we moved on to the shed at the rear of the building to discover what she was made of, which was primarily timber. Over the years, normal hardwood (now suffering from wet rot and termites) had been added on during maintenance works and the tour turned interactive as Local Carpenter Mr. Ting Nik Sing and Ar. Mike Boon tasked us with a series of tests utilizing our five senses to differentiate between belian and other hardwoods.
