The latest exhibition at the National Museum of Cambodia provides an interesting opportunity to delve into Cambodia’s mysterious pre-Angkorian past.

“Angkor Ancestors” showcases artefacts excavated from two sites in Siem Reap province, both of which have unveiled new findings that have significantly improved understanding of pre-Angkorian life.

L’Ecole francaise d’Extreme-Orient (EFEO) has been excavating the two sites near the Western Baray reservoir of Siem Reap since 2003.
