Archeologists found ancient funeral "jugs" in Laos


Archeologists found 15 new locations in which the stone "jugs" which were, presumably, used for burials were constructed in forests of Laos. As reports Phys.org, origin of vessels which age is estimated in one thousand years remains a riddle for scientists.

New finds demonstrate that similar "jugs" were much more widespread, than scientists considered. Their detection can shed light on the one who constructed these vessels and also on that why they were created. During the new research scientists found 137 "jugs".

"It seems that jugs some of which several tons weighed were cut out in pits, and then somehow transported to the place of detection", - one of authors of the research Dugald O'Reilly said. Why vessels were placed in this forest, still remains a riddle for scientists. Besides, researchers have no evidence of existence of settlements near this place.

during excavation scientists also found the decorated disks which were located near jugs and, presumably, pointed to burial. Images of concentric circles, human figures and mythical beings were applied to them. The fact that the decorated party of a disk was placed down was surprising.

In burials were found such artifacts as ceramic objects, glass beads, iron tools, jewelry and small weights for a manual spindle.

"Is curious that we found also tiny copies of big jugs, but made of clay. We would like to know why people made the same jugs in which buried the dead to bury together with them", - O'Reilly added.
