9780822575856: Angkor Wat (Unearthing Ancient Worlds)

In the mid-1800s, a French researcher named Henri Mouhot explored the jungles of Cambodia, collecting samples of exotic plants. But a local guide helped him find something far more interesting the mysterious remains of an ancient city. Many of the buildings were in ruins, but one structure rose out of the jungle: Angkor Wat. With its five massive stone towers and broad terraces, the temple Angkor Wat is one of the largest ancient structures in the world. Later archaeologists created detailed maps and drawings of the area that from 800 to 1100 A.D. was the capital of the Khmer Empire. The explorers had many questions: Why had people created such magnificent buildings? Why had the city been abandoned? And what did the ancient inscriptions on the walls say? Archaeologists began to put the story of Angkor together as they untangled the ancient runs from the jungle's grasp. Language experts deciphered the inscriptions on the walls. In the 1970s, a civil war in Cambodia temporarily brought work at Angkor to a halt, and the jungle again started to take over. But by the early 1980s, people around the world returned to the ancient city to continue restoration. Their work goes on, and Angkor Wat remains a treasured national symbol of Cambodia.

From School Library Journal :

Grade 5–8—These books introduce important ruins and explain the archaeological processes behind their discoveries. Each volume details the major archaeologists and researchers involved, including their personal and professional motivations, found in the primary-source excerpts that dot the pages. Differing scientific opinions are also presented, such as theories on why Angkor Wat faces west. Native terminology-Sanskrit terms related to Angkor Wat, and Rapanui words for Easter Island's statues, for example—is provided for many relevant places and objects. The present-tense, chronological texts are easily accessible, provide sufficient information for reports, and are reinforced by full-color maps and archival illustrations and color photographs of the structures. Easter complements Caroline Arnold's Easter Island (Clarion, 2000), but these books focus more on the complexities of archaeological work than comparative works. Good choices for libraries in need of updates for their social-studies collections.—Jeff Meyer, Slater Public Library, IA
