The Site

Ban Chiang earned great fame for it's attractive red-painted pottery. The first scientific excavation in 1967 unearthed several skeletons which were buried with bronze gifts.

Rice fragments excavated here testify that the bronze age settlement was made by the peasants. There were other bronze objects too like rings, wires, spearheads, axes, blades, bracelets, blades, rods, wires and little bells. But the site has even older historic assets, dating from the neolithic age.

One of the excavations has been left uncovered for the tourists, to enable them to see levels at which various objects were discovered. There is also a small museum.
