A Brief Study of Cambodian Circular Earthwork Ceramics as

Michael F Dega, Kyle Latinis

Abstract


Prehistoric circular earthwork sites occurring across the basaltic plateau of eastern Cambodia/western Vietnam are internally homogenous in terms of site characteristics and material record. Energy Dispersive X-Ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analysis of several earthwork ceramic assemblage samples was studied in efforts to identify if ceramic production centers could be recognized within the circular site grouping. The EDXRF study provides an additional level of analysis to show that earthwork pottery was not being traded further south, into the Mekong Delta floodplains, and vice-versa.
