    Archaeologists unearthed a two meter tall statue at Siem Reap’s Angkor Wat complex. The statue dates back to the late 12th / early 13th century and is the most significant artifact discovery since 2011.

    Cambodian archaeologists and experts from Singapore’s Institute of Southeast Asian Studies found the statue buried 40 centimetres (16 inches) underground during an excavation of an Angkor-era hospital built during the reign of King Jayavarman VII.
