Site 88

Old Village A: Pha Pheung Village, Khoun district.

This site was visited and geolocated by Skopal and Bounxayhip in 2020. It comprises one group of five standing granite jars, buried near to the rim, and one granite disc positioned along a flat ridgeline with views of the surrounding landscape. The jars feature flat and recessed inner rim styles. Large granite deposits in the shape of massive boulders are located ca. 600 m from the site, indicating a potential stone source. Some of the jars are partially buried and some to the rim.

This site may be the site Colani referred to as Song Meng at which she described 7 jars either intact of fragmented and 50 m distant, 5 more. She notes many of the jars are buried and the presence of two monolithic 'lids' (see pg. 216-219 Shewan and O'Reilly 2019).
