Early 17th century Japanese village discovered in Cambodia

Researchers working on a site near Phnom Penh in Cambodia believe they have discovered the remains of a Japanese village dating to the 17th century. Artifacts found include ceramics and kilns.

"There were about 100 Japanese living in the village during that period of time, and most of them were engaged in religious affairs and trading," said Hiroshi Sugiyama, chief research fellow at Japan's National Research Institute for Cultural Properties.
