Back in the Sixties, when every day was war in Indochina, every now and then you’d hear something about a “Plain of Jars” in Laos. I always wondered “What’s that?”, but the nooze reports never bothered to explain it.
So it’s still a bit of a mystery today. Just like it’s a mystery where the deuce my link went. Ah, there it is.
The plain is covered with these great big stone jars, which tend to contain human bones and grave goods. Archaeologists guess they date from around 500 B.C. to 500 A.D., but that’s just a good guess. It’s hard to study a place full of unexploded ordnance waiting to go off and blow an archaeologist to kingdom come.
I wonder what’ll be left of our alleged civilization, fifteen hundred years from now. What will people say about us?
