Book Summary:

This new edition of theconcise but authoritativesurvey of Khmer cultureincorporates newdiscoveries that willcompletely rewrite history. The ancient city of Angkor in Cambodia has fascinated scholars and visitors alike since its rediscovery in the mid-19th century. The beauty and multiplicity of the sculptures that adorn its temples and structures are striking, its sheer size overwhelming--in the archaeological world, nothing equals it. This concise but complete and authoritative survey of Khmer culture has now been thoroughly updated to incorporate new discoveries that will completely rewriting history. Although archaeologists and scholars have done pioneering work on the history of Angkor and the Khmer civilization that built it, questions remained. Recently, however, our knowledge has been revolutionized by cutting-edge technology: airborne laser scanning (LiDAR) has revealed previously unkown details about cities, revealing a complex urban landscape with highways and waterways. These discoveries profoundly transform our assumptions about the development and supposed decline of Angkor. In this new edition, respected archaeologist Michael Coe is joined by Damian Evans, who led this remarkable program of scientific exploration, to present for the first time in book form the results and implications of these groundbreaking revelations.

Book Summary:

Templene av Angor er Kambodsjas største turistattraksjon. De over 100 templene er en påminnelse på det som tidligere var et stort administrativt og religiøst senter. Templene ble bygd mellom det 9ende og 13ende århundre, for å vise Khmer-kongene heder og ære. Angkor ble forbudt i det 15århundre og gjengrodd av vegetasjon. Området vekket interesse igjen på 1900 tallet da den franske naturalisten Henri Mouhot publiserte templenes eksistens for omverden. Det ble satt i gang arbeid med å rydde vekk vegetasjonen som truet med å ødelegge templenes eksistens. Restaureringen fortsetter ennå, og den ene praktbygningen etter den andre dukker opp. Med bakgrunn i disse funnene viser boken hvordan Khmer sivilisasjonen var og hvordan samfunnet var organisert, hvordan herskere levde og hvordan dagliglivet artet seg. Boken er gjennomillustrert med fargefotografier, mange helsides. Ordforklaringer og register bak.

Book Summary:

Noen U-Loke and Non Muang Kao are two large, moated prehistoric settlements in Nakhon Ratchasima Province, Northeast Thailand. Excavations in 1997-8 revealed a cultural sequence that began in the late Bronze Age, followed by four mortuary phases covering the Iron Age. This report describes the palaeoenvironment, excavation, chronology and material culture, human remains and social structure of the prehistoric inhabitants of these two sites. It is the second volume reporting on the research programme "The Origins of the Civilization of Angkor".
