Through the promotion about volunteering of the people, who handed the ancient artefacts over the past two months, APSARA Authority has received six ancient ceramics, four of them are currently stored (two of them are preserved at the Norodom Sihanouk-Angkor Museum) preserved and maintained by the experts of Angkor International Center of Research and Documentation of APSARA.

Mr. Thy Sereyvuth, a ceramics conservation and repository expert at the Angkor International Center of Research and Documentation, describes how to conserve these ceramics: First, we clean these ceramics to remove mosses and salts and then squeeze them in the least mineral water for three days, pour salt, and once a day until salted. After drying, it is advisable to reinforce it by using B72 and B42 glue with chemical substance in order to apply this liquid to these potteries. Because these ceramics do not have anything to fix, it does not take much time. All the ceramics are also recorded dates, locations, and backgrounds for documentary and research, as well as exhibited at museum.




Since the ancient time, the local people, who live in the region of Angkor, have maintained the legacy of Leang Me Mot celebration in their villages every year. Obviously, this year the event was held on 3rd February 2018 in Nokor Krav village, Kouk Chok district, Siem Reap province.
