Angkorian Settlements and Interactions in the Cambodia Middle Mekong Region
The Middle Mekong Region played a crucial role in the formation of the pre-Angkorian and Angkor states. Most Angkorian centers are concentrated within the open plains with favorable access to rice cultivation and interconnected by landroutes. Settlements of the Middle Mekong Region are predominantly located within a narrow strip of fertile land between the rivers and the highlands historically associated with different groups of minorities. This paper combines multiple datasets including site distribution, inscriptions, stoneware geochemical analysis, as well as a navigation and economic model to discuss Angkorian settlement patterns and interactions along the Middle Mekong.
