Mysterious Plain of Jars Site Holds Human Remains

An interesting find. The past is truly another world, but one that we can still visit vicariously.

After having taken one forensic anatomy / anthropology taught by the legendary Dr. William Bass, I became an armchair anthropology student / ” armchair archeologist “, even though I only handled 2 skulls & a handful of vertebra that were destined to be re – interred out in the U.S. Southwest ( I forget which tribe they belonged to ).

This article mentions a quartz ornament on one of the skulls, but didn’t include any pictures of it. perhaps it had a religious / spiritual significance ?

This does sound QUITE INTERESTING.


An ancient burial site has been discovered at the mysterious Plain of Jars, an archaeological site in remote central Laos littered with thousands of stone vessels.
