There are few accessible publications on the subject of the pre-Khmer period in the Mekong Delta. In recent years, local and foreign archaelogists have discovered a good deal about the maritime trade and material culture of the Fu Nan society, which existed there in the early years of the Common Era. In these six essays, specialists set out with maps, drawings and colour illustrations what is known about the Fu Nan period. They trace many precursors of the well-known and later Khmer monuments at Angkor and elsewhere, focusing on its material remains, including architecture, sculpture, metalwork, jewelry and pottery, as well as trade wares.
