A guest lecture for the Angkor: The Lost Empire of Cambodia exhibition

A guest lecture from Dr. Alison Carter from the University of Oregon, to learn about the daily lives and activities of the ancient Angkorian people.

The Angkor civilization was the major regional power in Southeast Asia from the 9th to 15th centuries and one of the largest preindustrial settlements in the world. Angkor’s temples, statues, inscriptions, and archaeology have been the focus of more than a century of study.

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.
