Angkor dating radiocarbon
I spent the 1987-1988 academic year (and then some!) in the Pasil Municipality, and concentrated my research in the village of Dalupa.I now work in northwestern Cambodia on the Angkorian and post-Angkorian periods.In 2009, I joined Phase III of the Greater Angkor Project in collaboration with Dr.Penny Dan, Pottier Christophe, Kummu Matti, Fletcher Roland, Zoppi Ugo, Barbetti Mike, Tous Somaneath.

The Lower Mekong Archaeological Project is the first archaeological project to examine the establishment, growth, and decline of early historic period settlements in Cambodia's Mekong Delta.

Groslier recast Angkor as "la cité hydraulique", recognising the important role of the network of canals, embankments and reservoirs in both the operation of the medieval Cambodian capital and its eventual demise as the seat of power.
Recent mapping of the southern (Pottier, 1999) and northern (Evans, 2002) zones of Angkor has revealed, for the first time, the full aerial extent of the water management infrastructure, revealing it to be both massive and convoluted, covering an area of around 1,000 km2 (Fletcher et al, 2003; Fig. Indeed, the water management infrastructure is, arguably, Angkor's defining characteristic.
Dalupa is a moderate-sized village by Pasil standards, with approximately seventy-eight households and approximately 400 residents.
What makes Dalupa unusual for Pasil is that many of its female residents make pottery as a part-time specialization.
