Ancient Architecture in Southeast Asia

Archaeology reveals the history of architecture, or the art and science of designing buildings.

The study of archiecture often coincides with archaeology, since many archaeological finds in Southeast Asia are related to ancient temple structures (such as Angkor Wat, Borobudur, and the Cham Towers), but also bridges, wallsfortifications and buildings from the colonial period.

There’s also the Virtual Archaeology page where you can visit Southeast Asian archaeological sites online, or learn something from the Online Lecture Library, or find recent academic papers for more up-to-date research.

Architecture News Archive

The news reports indexed below usually link to external sites that were active at the time of posting; sometimes websites may be temporarily down or may have reorganised their underlying architecture or have even closed down – in these cases the links may not be available. Most of the news articles archived are in English, although when I am made aware of stories in this and other languages I try to index them.
