This book describes the emergence of the Buddhist landscapes of Myanmar. The authoritative text is framed by the artefacts, sites and ecology of Upper and Lower Myanmar, with coverage of the Paleolithic, Neolithic, Bronze-iron chiefdoms that preceded Hindu-Buddhist walled polities of the first millennium AD. Views and descriptions of sites, many not published in English before, include Letpanchibaw, Htaukmagon, Moegyobyin, Badigon, Ta- gaung, Halin, Sriksetra, Thaton and Dawei.

The author's extensive fieldwork with Myanmar academics over the last decade provides an original perspective on the catalysts that structure landscape interaction, enabling expansion of agriculture, resource utilization and international trade networks. The archaeology is linked to Yunnan, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and South Asia. The central theme, however, remains the relationship between man and the environment.
