Preserving the endangered manuscripts of the Cham people in Vietnam

This month EAP531 sent their interim report with accompanying photographs to the EAP Office. It is a pilot project conducting a survey of Cham manuscripts held at various locations in Vietnam. The images are truly fascinating and here is a selection.
