5. The Khmer Empire - Fall of the God Kings
Listen now
Description
Deep in the Cambodian Jungle, a ruined city crumbles among the roots of banyan trees. In this episode, we look at the Khmer Empire of medieval Cambodia, and the ancient mega-city of Angkor. I want to explore how this great civilization rose to a size and wealth virtually unprecedented in the world, how it overcame the challenges of its climate and landscape, and all the factors that led to its final, dramatic collapse.
