Beyond the Greater Angkor Region

Project description

Urbanism and human-environment interactions of the medieval Khmer Empire

Archaeology abounds with studies and attempts to investigate human-environment coupled systems in urban settings, and it is also suitable for identifying characteristics of resilient systems over the course of centuries. While detailed analyses of urbanism and human-environment interactions have been conducted on the giant low-density complex of the Greater Angkor region, they have not been investigated in the context of regional networks of the medieval Khmer Empire (9th – 14th centuries CE). The EU-funded BGAR project is focussing on these issues with the involvement of a dynamic and multidisciplinary network of scholars interested in human-environment interactions in mainland Southeast Asia.
