Danielle and Dominique-Pierre Guéret worked in Cambodia from June 1992 to January 2006. Danielle was a professor in the Archeology Department of the Royal University of Phnom Penh. Dominique-Pierre worked first as a director in the UNTAC and then as an expert for the United Nations Development Program. From 2004 they travelled the roads of the kingdom and visited all the provinces to discover pagodas.  From 2006 to 2015, they completed their research work; and these eleven years of work resulted in two Ph.D. theses defended in The Sorbonne Paris IV in November 2015: one about the architecture of the pagodas and the others about the paintings that adorn the walls of the small number of monasteries that escaped damage from years of turmoil and the Khmer Rouge period.

In 2008, they were both appointed experts at the Ministry of Culture for the protection of Cambodia’s religious patrimony.
