The Mekong, sometimes called the "mother of rivers," is one of the last great rivers yet to be extensively dammed, serving as a source of water for both ancient and modern civilizations. Every year, monsoon showers send floods down the rapids at Stung Treng, covering the plains in nutrient-rich silt. Join environmental historian David Biggs as he discusses art, hydraulic architecture, and water politics of the past and present.
