Lost City In Cambodia

Submitted by on June 20, 2013 – 5:36 AMNo Comment | 931 views

Though Henri Mouhot is often credited as the discoverer of Angkor Wat in 1860, it is not actually true that Wat was ever really lost. The locals always knew it was there and other westerners had recorded visiting the ruins prior to Mouhot’s “discovery.”

A team of archaeologists have recently discovered a lost city nearby, using GPS and Lidar.

Archaeologists find lost city deep in the jungles of Cambodia

You’re next, Atlantis. Archaeologist Damian Evans and a team of researchers in Cambodia have discovered an ancient city that was hidden in the jungle for more than 1,000 years. The lost city of Mahendraparvata is 1,200 years old — 350 years older than Cambodia’s treasured Angkor Wat temple complex. The settlement was part of the Hindu-Buddhist Khmer Empire that ruled much of Southeast Asia from about 800 to 1400 A.D. Archaeologists found the ruins using airborne laser mapping technology, and stunned even lifelong residents of the area, who had no idea that their dense tropical landscape hid the priceless remains of an ancient civilization.

To read more about this discovery go to The Age.com.AU and watch a video that details how Mahendraparvata was found.

I wonder if Bigfoot has been using these lost cities to hide in?
Until there is independent confirmation of Melba Ketchum’s results, Gigantopithecus is still the leading contender in my book for the source of Bigfoot, and Giganto. originated in Cambodia.
So who knows what more could be discovered?
Seriously, the discovery of Mahendraparvata has significant value all its own without need to play games with cryptozoology and I look forward to the results of exploration of this site.

I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.
