Site 13

Ban Thoume, San Phou Naluang. According to Van Den Bergh et al. this small site which is situated in Khun District contains 3 jars and a single disc.

The jars and disc are hewn out of granite and the jars appear damaged and vulnerable.

The site is located on a hill slope of Phou Naleung and is surrounded by rice fields and mountains. An ancient temple, Wat Kau lies to the north of the site. The site these days can easily be reached by road.

This site may be what Colani refers to as Na Nong (Shewan and O'Reilly 2019:219). Colani recorded 34 granite jars and a lot of stone debris. She found a large granite disc decorated with a human figure with legs spread and arms raised. This disc was removed to Phonsavan. The disc's current whereabouts is unknown.
