The Living Angkor Road Project: Connectivity within Ancient Mainland Southeast Asia
Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University, Spring 2015

A Khmer-Thai Collaboration research project named the “Living Angkor Road Project” (LARP) has been
supported by the Thailand Research Fund (TRF) and the Authority for the Protection and Management of Angkor and the Region of Siem Reap (APSARA). LARP is a cross-border multi-disciplinary research aimed at firstly, identifying all the remaining portions of ancient roads radiating from the Angkor capital to different provinces of the ancient Khmer empire, in view of an overall mapping of the network known to date. Secondly, it aims to identify and describe all the infrastructures existing along these roads: bridges, all kinds of canals, temples, the remains of rest-houses and hospitals.
