This volume completes the series of reports on the excavationsof Ban Non Wat, Noen U-Loke and Ban Lum Khao.
Ban Non Wat is a large, moated prehistoric settlement in Nakhon Ratchasima Province, Northeast Thailand. Excavations in 2002-8 revealed a cultural sequence that began with a group of hunter-gatherers, followed by 10 mortuary phases covering the Neolihtic to the Iron Age. This report describes the Bronze Age occupation of this site. The five phases of Bronze Age burials began with the transition from the late Neolithic in the late 11th century BC, and reveal the rapid rise of social elites seen in the princely graves of the second and third phases. These were followed by a sharp decline in mortuary wealth, leading directly into the early Iron Age in about 420 BC.
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".
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.
