I am an archaeologist who has worked in Cambodia since 2005. This blog is focused on issues related to archaeology, history, and culture in Cambodia and Southeast Asia more generally. I started this blog in 2008 while undertaking my PhD dissertation research in Cambodia and blogged regularly for several years.

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Oregon.  For this reason, I’ve neglected this blog for several years, but leave it up as people seem to get some use out of a few of these posts.

You can reach me through the “contact me” page, but a better way to reach me is through my institutional email address: acarter4@uoregon.edu

Other information about me can be found at on my University of Oregon webpage and my Google Sites page.

  1. Nice doggy! 🙂 I have the cutest chow chow on earth.

    You didn’t say what you’re research is about. I would like to know what your main interests are.

    I was thinking of asking for a scholarship from the Center of Khmer Studies, the one for US students, do you know if they are very competitive? I really need to go back for my PhD and stay for a while. I need to see the panels I’m working on, measure them, do some statistics and would sell my soul (not literally!) to see how they build a dugout canoe today!

  3. HI Feliks- Yes! It is definitely worth applying for a CKS fellowship. Their grants are small, so it would not be enough for a long-term project but it would be enough for short-term research!

  4. I like your blog. Few blogs talk about Cambodia.
