Angkor jewellery returned by UK dealers

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Yes, I was there last week. It's $10 for foreigners over 18 years old now, $5 for under. And 500 Riel for locals, only an 80X difference!

Angkorian antiquities on show after return from United Kingdom
8 January
The National Museum is currently running a monthlong exhibition of Angkorian jewellery to celebrate the return last month of several gold pieces from the United Kingdom, believed to have been looted from Angkor Wat.

The pieces featured prominently in a book written by two Southeast Asian antiquities experts who are accused by New York district prosecutors of conspiring with a prominent Manhattan art dealer to traffic antiquities.

The dealer, Nancy Wiener, is due to appear in court in New York on February 20. The exhibition runs through February 4.
