The difficulties in establishing the history of the Khmers and the contribution of archaeological excavations: the example of Hariharalaya

Claude Jacques (Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes, Paris)

Professor Claude Jacques, a world authority on ancient Angkor, will lecture on the extensive excavations now underway at Hariharalaya, just south of Angkor, which are beginning to challenge some of the fundamental assumptions held for more than a century about how the Khmers first organised themselves into the early state that was to expand into the major imperial capital of Southeast Asia by the 11th century.
