The plain of jars, Laos

The plain of jars, is a megalithic archaeological site in Laos. Scattered across the landscape are dozens of what are thought to be funerary jars fashioned from solid blocks of sandstone. They date from the iron age, perhaps 500 BC to 200 AD. It is thought that the lids were often made of perishable material as relatively few have been found.
