Pioneer academic work on the ¨Historic Routes to Angkor¨
Even before the LIDAR campaigns showed the extent of the Angkorian urban and communication network, archeologists have traced the main routes to and from the Khmer Empire nucleus.
This research is now extended to the regional level with joint efforts from Thailand under the coordination of archeologist Im Sokhrithy at Apsara Authority. See here for updated news.
