Abstract

Tate Devantier-Thomas investigated the Plain of Jars megalithic complex through Experimental Archaeological approaches. He determined that current literature regarding megalith production contained assumptions which had extensive impact on understandings of the region's prehistory. The findings of his study may aid in the future archaeological investigation of Laos.
