| Technology helps solve an ancient mystery
Highly recommended for those with an interest in Southeast Asian history. The two episodes cover the rise and fall of the Khmer Empire, which controlled much of the region for centuries. LiDAR technology, a form of laser mapping, is a major focus of the effort to more clearly understand the extent of the empire, particularly in the area of the city surrounding the famous Angkor Wat. As the title suggests, much of the former capital has been swallowed by jungle since its abandonment. What would have taken decades to explore and document, has been revealed through the use of LiDAR to show how the city was designed and the attributes that helped it to flourish. In particular, the extensive waterworks that allowed the empire to mitigate the effects of the annual monsoon and dry seasons are illustrated in great detail.
