“Angkor: The capital of the Khmer empire, in Kampuchia [sic], founded in c9AD. Most of the surviving ruins date from c!2. They were lost in jungle and rediscovered in the last century. The city of Angkor Thom was 2.8 km square and moated, with the fantastically sculptured temple of the Bayon at its center. Other temples such as Ta Prohm and Angkor Vat [sic] cluster in the neighbourhood.”
