Archaeology of Cambodia

Archive of news reports related to the archaeology and heritage of Cambodia, home to Angkor Wat and the great Khmer civilisation. Cambodia is located in Mainland Southeast Asia, surrounded by Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. The archaeology of Cambodia has been studied greatly, mostly on the art and architecture of Angkor, but increasingly on pre-Angkorian and prehistoric sites such as Laang Spean. All three Unesco World Heritage Sites of Cambodia are archaeological sites: the famous Angkor Archaeological Park, Preah Vihear, and the Temple Zone of Sambor Prei Kuk.

In this page are some recommended books, an image gallery, and an archive of news stories related to Cambodian archaeology. You may also wish to check out the Online Lecture Library and recent academic papers for more up-to-date research.

Archaeology of Cambodia in the News

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; this is largely because I do not have a working competency in Khmer, although when I am made aware of stories in this and other languages I try to index them.
