The archaeological site of Ban Chiang is important evidence of a prehistoric population that settled in Southeast Asia. Many objects come from the ancient civilization of Ban Chiang, which occupied north-eastern Thailand around 1000 b.C. Artifacts, including ornaments of bronze and iron, as well as pottery with sophisticated and unique designs, attests to the advanced culture of this prehistoric settlement.
