In case you missed our earlier blog, we spent a full morning at the National Museum Ban Chiang. This was an important highlight for us and we would strongly recommend it. Ban Chiang is an archeological site in Nong Han District, Udon Thani Province, Thailand. It has been on the UNESCO world heritage list since 1992. The site was discovered by chance in 1966. It has attracted enormous publicity because of its attractive natural  red  pottery that had been painstakingly painted using gold leaf. (Wikipedia).

The National Museum is really interesting. There are many beautiful and ancient pieces of pottery, including burial pots with the human remains, especially those of infants and even those of just a foetus.
