Summary

This paper presents the results from the 2015 excavation of a house mound within the Angkor Wat enclosure. Although household archaeology is well established in other tropical locations, notably Mesoamerica, few households have been closely examined in Southeast Asia. In this paper, we discuss some of the preliminary findings from our excavation of an Angkorian house mound, as well as research on the use of space around the mound and the potential for household gardens. A comparison with household studies amongst the Maya highlight potential fruitful avenues for future research as well as challenges unique to studying households of the Angkorian period.
