    Archaeological mounds surrounded by moats and embankments are common in the Mun River valley of the Khorat Plateau in Northeast Thailand. Sites with a similar morphology have been identified in neighbouring Cambodia but they are far less common. While several of the Thai sites have been subject to investigation only one moated site, to date, has been excavated in Cambodia. This paper presents the findings of the recent excavations at Phum Lovea.
