An Archaeological Assessment at Don Dong Muang Northest Thailand

Moira Woods, Steven Parry

Abstract


The site of Don Dong Muang lies some 5 kms north of the city of Ubon at the soutliern edge of the Khorat plateau, northeast Thailand (Fig. 1). This area has produced the largest amount of archaeological material in Thailand with sites dating from the fourth or early third millennium BC to AD 1000. The plateau is bounded to the north and east by the Mekong River, with mountain ranges to the west and south. There are two drainage basins; the Songkhram to the north and the Mun-Chi basin to the south. It is in this southern area that the town of Ubon is located, near the confluence of the Mun and Chi Rivers. "
