Site 92

Pha Hai: Houay Loun village, Khoun district. This site was visited and geolocated by Skopal and Bounxayhip in 2020. One group of five poorly preserved limestone jars positioned on a level area ca. 200 m south from the base of a cliff with views over the surrounding landscape. Jar rim styles could not be determined due to the poor preservation of the jars. A limestone outcrop was found ca. 50 m north from the jars, indicating a potential stone source. Local "hunters stated that there were two similar jar sites ca. 1–2 km to the east. However, time restrictions prevented the team from visiting these additional sites. The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) established air bases in this area during the Vietnam War from 1955 to 1974 (Leary 2007). The general coordinates of this site place it near what was known by the CIA as Lima Site 2. Pha Hai may represent what Dussault (1919) and Colani (Shewan and O’Reilly 2019) refer to as San Tiau, though this is speculative and they could have just as likely been referring to one of the two still unconfirmed sites ca. 1–2 km to the west."
