Discovery of Mahendraparvata

2 August, 2013

Dr Damian Evans of the Asian Studies Program is director of the University of Sydney's archaeology research centre in Cambodia, which has recently played a key role in the discovery of a lost mediaeval city. Using an instrument called Lidar attached to a helicopter, researchers were able to identify two dozen previously unrecorded temples that had been hidden by jungle for 1200 years just north of the Angkor Wat complex.

More information on the discovery, including pictures and video, can be found in this Sydney Morning Herald article
