In the mountains of Cambodia, 50 km from Angkor and its famous temples, archaeologist Jean-Baptiste Chevance tirelessly excavates the remains of Mahendraparvata, another vast ancient Khmer city. Thanks to Chevance’s work, this ancient capital hidden beneath jungle is gradually revealing its secrets. Founded in the 9th century, it is thought to be the first capital of the Khmer Empire. In many ways, it prefigures Angkor.
