About the Talk

The 15th to 19th century Cambodia is often referred to as the “Dark Age” owing largely to the paucity of documents and the collapse of Angkor political power followed by the steady decline of Cambodia. This talk uses East Asian documents relative to Cambodia, and recent archaeological research in Angkor and post-Angkorian capitals to illustrate that Cambodia remained a power player in the South China Sea through the 17th -18th centuries. This talk outlines a brief historical timeline and sources relative to the post-Angkorian Cambodia and recent archeological findings from decade of collaborative research at the Banteay Kdei Temple (Angkor) and the post-Angkorian capital of Oudong (Phnom Penh).
