Bangkok’s Jim Thompson Thai House Museum will be displaying a number of cloth maps from the latest 18th, early 19th centuries. “The two largest of the 17 [maps] are topographic maps focusing on the Siamese-Burmese border zone at Muang Thawai. The rest are general topographic charts, illustrating Cambodia’s Tonle Sap, estuaries, lowlands, and important routes linking land and sea. These contain the habitats of different ethnic groups as well as the position of royal palaces and military barracks. They show signs of industry and trade: silk-weaving houses; go-downs with junks in harbors.”
