Abstract: Khmer stoneware technology first appeared in the ninth century CE in what is now northwest Cambodia and probably also in northeast Thailand, and production continued until at least the fourteenth century CE. The technical study of these stoneware kilns allows us to understand how and when Khmer potters developed this stoneware technological tradition. This study reviews stonewares recovered from excavated Khmer kilns and from recently excavated Angkorian sites to offer insights on Khmer stoneware production. Work concentrates on each well-documented stoneware production center in the Greater Angkor region and reviews our knowledge of Khmer stoneware production from northeast Thailand, using published information from sites in Buriram Province.
