An Italian team has worked at the ancient Champa site for the last ten years, doing archaeological research and restoration work in cooperation with Vietnamese specialists. This book is the first published volume based on their efforts. The opening section consists of historical, anthropological, and architectural studies of the civilization of Champa. The book goes on to present an unusually intimate and extensively illustrated portrait of the archaeologists' research and restoration work.
