Laos Plain of Jars Full and Half
Full (background) and half (foreground) jars at Site 1 of the Plain of Jars in north-central Laos. Much remains unknown about the age and purpose of the thousands of stone jars clustered in the region. Most accounts date them to at least a couple of thousand years ago and theories have been put forward that they were used in burial rituals.
