Archaeologist Bruno Bruguier (1952, Toulouse) is the author of the series Guides archéologiques du Cambodge (Archaeological Guidebooks of Cambodia), an exhaustive description of the archaelogical sites around the country in six volumes he wrote with his wife, Juliette Lacroix.

His doctoral thesis in Oriental studies (1994, under Bruno Dagens' direction) dealt with the roofing techniques and styles in Ancient Cambodia, and he also published on the ancient Khmer bridges or the Kampot caves. He took part in several scientific missions in Cambodia and Southeast Asia for the World Monuments Fund, UNESCO and EFEO, focusing on heritage conservation. He joined EFO in 1991, and taught at Phnom Penh Royal University of Fine Arts, Department of Archaelogy, in 1998.

In charge of the creation of the new EFEO Documentation Center in Paris, Bruno Bruguier authored a Bibliography of Ancient Cambodia (Bibliographie du Cambodge ancien, 2 vols, 1998-1999, PEFEO, Paris, with Phann Nady).
