Heavy coiled bronze necklace and for Private collector

Ban Chiang area, Nong Han district, North-Eastern Thailand.

First millennium BCE. Ban Chiang is an important Bronze Age village and cemetery site, located at the confluence of three small tributary streams in Udon Thani province, northeastern Thailand.

The site is one of the largest prehistoric Bronze Age sites in this part of Thailand, measuring at least 8 hectares (20 acres) in size.

Excavated in the 1970s, Ban Chiang was one of the first extensive excavations in southeast Asia and among the earliest multi-disciplinary efforts in archaeology, with experts in many fields cooperating to produce a fully realized picture of the site.

As a result, Ban Chiang's complexity, with a fully-developed Bronze Age metallurgy but lacking the weaponry so often associated with it in Europe and the rest of the world, was a revelation.
