The Khmer are in South East Asia, so we can continue the discussion there.

I'm not entirely sure what a bas relief is, but it's surprising how much information you can tell from a temple. Especially if the tombs of the Kings are in the temple compounds, quite a significant amount of archelogy comes from the remains of religious buildings.

Written records did not survive but many inscriptions did. They record the names of rulers, their victories, defeats  etc

The Khmer Empire, according to wikipedia lasted from 800 CE to 1863 CE when the French Empire took it over. Does anyone know any specific books about this great empire?

There were several Chinese writers who lived in the empire and wrote about it.

If you not find these Chinese ? = Anna Leonowens and Chulalongkorn who gave up some Cambojan territory to the French Indochine.
