To apply conservation principles to archaeological remains is a difficult task especially when they are at a state of ruins due to destructive events like earthquakes, floods, storms, etc. or, even worse, to wars. This was the case of the Hindu temples of the archaeological site of My Sơn (Vietnam); the temples were built by the Cham people from the 5th to the 14th century a.C., partially destroyed during various invasions from China and during wars between Chams and Kmers and finally badly damaged by shells during the Vietnam war. The authors will describe their experience and try to draw some guidelines for the conservation design of these peculiar structures also in other Vietnamese sites.

Abstract

To apply conservation principles to archaeological remains is a difficult task especially when they are at a state of ruins due to destructive events like earthquakes, floods, storms, etc. or, even worse, to wars. This was the case of the Hindu temples of the archaeological site of My Sơn (Vietnam); the temples were built by the Cham people from the 5th to the 14th century a.C., partially destroyed during various invasions from China and during wars between Chams and Kmers and finally badly damaged by shells during the Vietnam war. The authors will describe their experience and try to draw some guidelines for the conservation design of these peculiar structures also in other Vietnamese sites.
