It will include mention of current documentation projects of the architectural, artistic and archaeological legacies of Pyu sites such as Sri Kestra, one of largest examples of first millennium settlement in Southeast Asia.

Dr Charlotte Galloway is lecturer in Asian art history and curatorial studies at the Australian National University, Canberra. She continues to research the Buddhist art of Myanmar, the topic of her doctorate studies, and spent her last sabbatical at Myanmar’s Pyu city site of Sri Ksetra, cataloguing the site museum collection.
