AIA Lecture: Looking Beyond the Temples: Exploring the Residences of the Ancient Angkorians

Monday, September 17 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Oberlin Public Library, Community Room 65 South Main Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Archaeological Institute of America Annual Lecture by Alison Carter '01. 

Angkor, centered in the modern nation of Cambodia, was one of the largest preindustrial settlements in the world and has been the focus of more than a century of epigraphic, art historical, and architectural research.

However, few scholars have examined the lives of the people who built the temples, kept the shrines running, produced the food, and managed the water.

This presentation will focus on my recent work with the Greater Angkor Project examining Angkorian habitation areas and specifically the excavation of a house mound within the Angkor Wat temple enclosure.

Through this multidisciplinary research, we aim to better understand the nature and timing of occupation within the Angkor Wat temple enclosure and the types of activities taking place within an Angkorian household.
