via Phnom Penh Post, 07 January 2020: Archaeologists in Cambodia investigating ancient bridges between Angkor and Roluos. Article is in Khmer.
The Apsara National Authority is considering to conserve and develop an ancient road connecting two capitals of the Angkor period – Sothor (Angkor) and Hariharalaya (Roluos) in Siem Reap province’s Kandek commune, Prasat Bakong district.
If carried out, the project will serve to turn the road into a living heritage. Apsara National Authority spokesman Long Kosal said after excavating it, the road was found to have connected the two capitals in Siem Reap.
A technical working group would continue its research into other ancient roads falling outside the park. This study, Kosal said, is aimed at promoting the value of ancient roads, bridges and constructions along them to raise awareness among the younger generations.
“We are studying the ancient road with a view to using it in the future because it has been left alone for a long time. No one has walked on or used it for years. We are now collecting data on road infrastructures to develop and conserve in the future,” he said.
