How did Saivite mountain sites function? and what was their significance during high Angkorean times?
Featured Speaker: Sarah Youngblutt
Although it is accepted that elite members of Indian communities occupied areas of ancient Cambodia, archaeologists have struggled to define when and how early Indian states advanced into Southeast Asia. Following from this question, this study explores ritualized landscape use through an examination of the Indian temples in Cambodia, Laos and Thailand between the 9th and 12th centuries AD. By examining 4 specific temple sites, this talk will provide a glimpse into the dynasty, worldview and rituals of ancient Angkor.
Soup, Coffee and Tea will be served.
