Site 39

Ban Phonekham. According to Van Den Bergh the site is one of three sites where lenticular limestone jars were recorded. The lenticular limestone is very porous and the jars have suffered extreme weathering leaving them in a poor condition. Due to the tectonic structure of the Plain of Jars plateau, the rock source is found in low-lying areas or at the base of the foothills and not in the surrounding high ground. The site has 2 groups and 11 jars. The site is located on a small hill to the west of the village and is surrounded by mountains. There is a contemporary cemetery at the site.
