Abstract: The author has worked for many years on the ancient Cham and Mon worlds, juxtaposing the two cultures, and drawing from the fields of both archaeology and anthropology. This paper looks at two-headed earrings of the Sa Huynh culture and the beliefs and society they may reflect, and further studies various reliquary deposits of Champa. It also examines the graph of the word Sri in Cham and Mon inscriptions from the beginning of the 11th century, looks at Buddhist statuettes from Dong Binh (Phan Thiet), which bear resemblance to each other but belong to two different schools, and investigates the existence of three powers in the middle of the 11th century in mainland South-East Asia. The provisional conclusions are that it is necessary to initiate new studies in these fields, taking into account their complexity and using anthropology together with archaeological data.
