Summary

  • The fascinating discovery of Angkor’s ruins conveys images of magnificence and splendor: we’d like to believe in the idea of a lost civilization, as was the case for the Roman Empire. Yet, the study of the ruins of these monumental temples gives no sign of any brutal disappearance: monumental inscriptions.
