Burma's Lost Kingdoms: Splendours of Arakan (review)

Burma's Lost Kingdoms: Splendours of Arakan (review) book reviews Mekong. This means that iron-ore deposits are distributed near Lao Pako. It was probably not dicult for Lao Pako people to retrieve iron ore. Prehistoric people used material depending on the ease of extraction; for example, the people of Ban Don Phlong, Buriram Province, used iron nodules as material because they lacked iron ore. No iron-working features were found at Lao Pako. The excavation of the ironworking site at Ban Don Phlong provides a glimpse of what a prehistoric iron-working site would have looked like (Nitta 1997). I believe Lao Pako used the same features as Ban Don Phlong to produce iron. At Ban Don Phlong they built a shaft furnace of clay, connected a clay tuyere with pipe, and inserted a double piston bellows into the furnace. They produced wrought iron by the direct method, refined it, and made iron tools in the final stage. Lao Pako is a very interesting site for continued studies on jar burial customs and iron-working activities in Laos and in the Mekong Basin.

Abstract

book reviews Mekong. This means that iron-ore deposits are distributed near Lao Pako. It was probably not dicult for Lao Pako people to retrieve iron ore. Prehistoric people used material depending on the ease of extraction; for example, the people of Ban Don Phlong, Buriram Province, used iron nodules as material because they lacked iron ore. No iron-working features were found at Lao Pako. The excavation of the ironworking site at Ban Don Phlong provides a glimpse of what a prehistoric iron-working site would have looked like (Nitta 1997). I believe Lao Pako used the same features as Ban Don Phlong to produce iron. At Ban Don Phlong they built a shaft furnace of clay, connected a clay tuyere with pipe, and inserted a double piston bellows into the furnace. They produced wrought iron by the direct method, refined it, and made iron tools in the final stage. Lao Pako is a very interesting site for continued studies on jar burial customs and iron-working activities in Laos and in the Mekong Basin.
