Exhibit: The First Golden Age of Cambodia

An exciting new exhibit will be opening at the National Museum in Phnom Penh on Monday with finds from the excavations at the site of Prohear.

I have heard the exhibit on Prohear will be permanent, so I am looking forward to seeing it on my next trip to Phnom Penh.

I am studying some of the beads from this site as part of my dissertation and wrote a little blurb about them for the exhibit.  The excavation was led by Dr. Andreas Reinecke and the German Archaeological Institute in partnership with the Memot Centre for Archaeology.

Their excellent website features a movie on the project and a PDF of a book about Prohear as well.

  3. This looks great. The only other time of been to the museum was for the Pidan (ikat weaving) exhibit. Think I’ll check this one out next time I’m in PP.
