メコン川下流域におけるプレアンコール期の都城の立地環境に関する地理学的研究 Geographical Settings of Pre-Angkorean Cities in the Lower Mekong Basin
We analyzed the locations of pre-Angkorean (2-8th century) and early Angkorean (9th century) cities in Cambodia and Laos by interpreting aerial photographs and carrying out a field investigation. We studied Angkor Borei (southern Cambodia), <i>Shresthapura</i> near the Vat Phou temple (southern Laos), Sambor Prei Kuk (central Cambodia), Banteay Prei Nokor (southeastern Cambodia), Phnom Chissor (southern Cambodia) and <i>Hariharalaya</i> (in Roluos near Angkor in Cambodia). We produced geomorphological maps of each city, and analyzed geographical settings focusing on relationships between cities and water resources, locations of temples, residential, and paddy production areas. The results will be published in another paper, we have already submitted as an original article.
