Cambodian Cultural History: Pre-Angkor to Today

Dr. Sovath Bong
 

Dr Sovath Bong, archaeologist and President of the Royal University of Fine Arts, invites us to explore the wonders of Cambodia's past with him in this presentation. Archaeological research into Cambodia's past began in the late 19th century revealing the hidden treasure of now-famous Angkor Wat, the largest religious site in the world. Most pre-Angkor (before 1100ce) objects recovered, such as statuary of Vishnu, Krishna, Balarāma and Ganesha expressed a strong Indian influence long before Buddhism, also arising in India, became the dominate religion. Thousands of wonderful artifacts have been recovered and are treasured cultural and World Heritage objects conserved with care today.

Trained in Archaeology and Anthropology at the Royal University of Cambodia and at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Dr Bong led archaeology investigations at Angkor Borei, Ba Phnom and at pre-Angkor sites along the Mekong River as well as conducted ethnographic research for the World Bank on World Heritage Site Management and Conservation before being appointed the Deputy Director General of Cultural Heritage, Ministry of Culture and Fine Art for the Kingdom of Cambodia. He became the President of the Royal University of Fine Arts in 2009 and continues in that position.
