Dr. Sharon Wong investigates the possible technological transfer of ceramic production between Angkor and China during the 9th to 14th centuries. Combining archaeological findings in Angkor and China, this talk discusses two distinctive ceramic products: covered boxes and roof tiles. How does ceramics provide a new placing of Angkor and the port cities of China, such as Guangzhou and Quanzhou, into the interregional networks of maritime Asia? Finally, this talk will discuss how archaeological ceramics could demonstrate the powerful kingship and the vivid social life in Angkor and Chinese societies during the 9th to 14th centuries.
