On 400 archaeology sites spanning an immense expanse of land stretching from Thailand, through Laos, and into northern India, there lies a bizarre oasis of jars.
During the 1930’s, Madeline Colani, the French archaeologist, performed an excavation of the Xiangkhoang Plains. Further investigation turned up two enormous chimney’s in a cave in close proximity to the jars. Colani discovered human remains in the jars leading archaeologists to theorize what the jars were actually used for. Colani, however, believed the chimneys were kilns used to cremate remains.
