This issue, Fiona Hyde takes us vividly to the soft dusks, jewel green landscapes and killing fields of Cambodia…

The marks of the Angkar’s three years, eight months and twenty days are felt all over Cambodia, their history not really history yet at all. There are over 300 killing fields around the country, some made into monuments to the dead, some lost forever to the jungle. In the most famous and visited of these killing fields, Choeung Ek, several kilometres outside the capital city of Phnom Penh, bones still rise, especially when it rains, and teeth drift on the top of the deep pits. Dead people’s coloured, faded clothes are tangled into tree roots. You see them as you walk around. The people who keep Choeung Ek collect all of these when they surface fully and then place them in a special box. You can view the box too.
