  1. UNESCO makes an interesting claim regarding restoration of the My Son Site in Vietnam” that the treasure haord of the Champa kings were left with local village people for safekeeping from the invasion of Khmers and others. I have no interest in treasure, but a lot of interest in stories like this for a book I am research for. Can anyone point me to references on this matter or similar content?
