The Cardamom Mountain Jar and Coffin burial site of Phnom Khnang Peung is the most extensive example of the distinctive burial ritual first reported by Beavan et al. (2012a). The 40 intact Mae Nam Noi and late Angkorian-era ceramic jars used as burial vessels held a total of up to 152 individuals, representing the largest corpus of skeletal remains of any of the 10 known Jar and Coffin burial sites that have been discovered in the eastern ranges of the Cardamom Mountains of Cambodia. We report… 
Isotopic insights into the jar-and-coffin mortuary ritual of the Cardamom Mountains, Cambodia
Abstract Abstract The use of coffins and jars as funerary receptacles was common across Southeast Asia. During the fifteenth to seventeenth centuries AD, cremation was the dominant mortuary tradition
New Dates for Old Kilns: A Revised Radiocarbon Chronology of Stoneware Production for Angkorian Cambodia
ABSTRACT Radiocarbon dates from recent excavations of a range of Angkorian Khmer (~9th–14th CE) stoneware kiln complexes provide a new and independent perspective on the timing and geography of Khmer

The Southeast Asian water frontier: coastal trade and mid-fifteenth c. CE “hill tribe” burials, southeastern Cambodia
In mainland Southeast Asia, the so-called water frontier unified an otherwise geographically broad and culturally disparate economic network of long-, medium-, and short-distance trade of the
Incisor ablation among the late upper paleolithic people of Tam Hang (Northern Laos): Social identity, mortuary practice, and oral health.
It is concluded that ablation does not always "compromise" the dentition; instead, it may have unintentional oral health benefits in some contexts.
Refining the chronology and distribution of mid-fifteenth to mid-seventeenth century Indian Ocean world glass
Abstract Morphological and compositional analysis of glass beads from three shipwrecks in the Indian Ocean world has increased our understanding of the chronology and distribution of mid-fifteenth to
Glass Beads from 15th–17th Century CE Jar Burial Sites in Cambodia's Cardamom Mountains
A total of 74 glass beads, included as grave goods in 15th–17th century CE jar burials from Cambodia's Cardamom Mountains, were analysed using laser ablation – inductively coupled plasma – mass


Radiocarbon Dates from Jar and Coffin Burials of the Cardamom Mountains Reveal a Unique Mortuary Ritual in Cambodia's Late- to Post-Angkor Period (15th–17th Centuries AD)
We present the first radiocarbon dates from previously unrecorded, secondary burials in the Cardamom Mountains, Cambodia. The mortuary ritual incorporates nautical tradeware ceramic jars and log
New evidence of brown glaze stoneware kilns along the East Road from Angkor
Brown-glazed ceramics are commonly found at Angkorian period sites yet our knowledge of production and distribution of these wares has been limited to kilns in Thailand and along the Angkorian roads

Jars in the Central Highlands of Mainland Southeast Asia
little attention has been paid to a tradition of jar acquisition, classification, use, and transmission in the mainland southeast asian Central highlands. since the early 1900s, scholars have
Tooth Ablation in Prehistoric Southeast Asia
The evidence suggests that ritual ablation is the most likely explanation for the absence of anterior teeth in prehistoric burials, although the loss of mandibular incisors in some early burials may be as a result of industrial use of the teeth.
New Method of Collagen Extraction for Radiocarbon Dating
There are, however, frequent and often important errors in 14C bone measurements which arise chiefly because of the difficulty of eliminating completely the numerous pollutants during chemical treatment.
Sulphur isotopes in palaeodietary studies: a review and results from a controlled feeding experiment
Recent advances in mass spectrometry now allow relatively routine measurements of sulphur isotopes (δ 34 S) in small samples (>10 mg) of tissue from archaeological human, plant, and faunal samples. δ
Cultural modification of the dentition in prehistoric Cambodia
It is shown that the modifications show distinct differences in prevalence and pattern, particularly that of filing, to nearby temporal neighbours in southern Cambodia and northeast Thailand, suggesting a unique cultural behaviour for this region.
