Living Angkor Road Project

No Comments

The Living Angkor Road Project is an example of how the web can help make the work of archaeology more accessible to public. I’ve previously posted a mention about the Living Angkor Road Project, a collaboration between Thailand and Cambodia to identify a royal road connecting Phimai and Angkor. The project has a homepage online, a wiki in fact, detailing the objectives and outline of the research.

Besides a detailed research rationale and methodology outline, the wiki also has a few photo galleries for you to check out the sights along the way. The photographs are written labelled in Thai, I think.

It’s promising to see research projects like these, especially from Southeast Asia, go up online because they immediately open a world of information to the public. Hopefully in the next decade we’ll see more and more research project pages go online. I’ll file this link in the links/resources section as well.
