via Phnom Penh Post, 10 February 2020: New sites surveyed in Cambodia’s Kratie province.
A group of technical officials from the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts and local authorities have inspected 126 ancient hills found recently in Kratie province to protect and preserve them.
The director of the ministry’s Department of Archaeology and Prehistory Voeun Vuthy said on Sunday that the inspections and border verifications of the 126 sites began on February 1.
He said officials recorded the size and boundaries for each location for preservation work.
“We are working with the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction to collect and insert data about the ancient hills to produce land titles. This makes it easy to manage and preserve the sites,” Vuthy said.
