Summary

The Origins of the Civilization of Angkorreflects the results of a research programme conducted by Charles Higham over the last twenty years, highlighting much entirely new, and occasionally surprising, information and providing a distinct perspective on cultural change over two millennia. The book covers the background of environmental change, the adoption of rice farming, archaeogenetics, the adoption of copper-based metallurgy, the iron age and the origins of state formation.

Author Biography

Charles Higham is Research Professor at the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology - University of Otago.
