Congratulations to Alyssa Loyless who received the award to study peripheral temple sites and cultural features of Sambor Prei Kuk, Cambodia

Archaeological Information Systems (now Digital Archaeology) MSc Alyssa Loyless has received the prestigious Fulbright award to study the peripheral temple sites and cultural features of Sambor Prei Kuk, Cambodia.

Alyssa will be creating realistic 3D models in order to digitally preserve the the brick temples of Sambor Prei Kuk for future use by researchers and succeeding generations of archaeologists. She will also be mapping and ground-truthing the core of the urban area. The research builds on the work she is conducting during her current Master's dissertation on remotely mapping the cultural features, such as temples and housing settlements, of Sambor Prei Kuk using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and lidar data collected from the Cambodian Archaeological Lidar Initiative.

Well done Alyssa!
