Designed to assist the adventurous visitor to the region, the book is also an armchair traveler’s introduction to over 532 of the most historic and visually engaging monuments across seven nations: Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar (Burma), and Malaysia.

The result of over twenty years of research and site visits by its author, archaeologist, and architectural conservator William Chapman, Ancient Sites of Southeast Asia provides a succinct overview of the region’s many historic ruins and related sites. Over 400 illustrations and 70-plus maps help to bring these many sites to life.
