Site 18


Ban Buatai, Phou Him Mong. According to Van Den Bergh et al. this site is one of the best examples of a jar quarry site recorded so far. The site is located on the east-facing slope of a hillock. The quarried area measures 100 metres long by 50 metres down the slope. Preliminary investigation revealed that 57 jars may have been extracted from this quarry. These results fit in well with the jar numbers found in the vicinity: 37 at Ban Bouatai and 8 at a group in close proximity to the quarry site.
