Information

Ban Prasat is the second archaeological site (the first was Ban Chiang) to be set up as an outdoor museum. Findings indicate that in the area lived a community in prehistory to early history. A community of the Dvaravati and Khmer periods thrived here 1,500-3,000 years ago. There are three pits that have been landscaped and open to the public. Discoveries include human skeletons and many pottery pieces that were dug up from various levels. They tell us about human evolution and community beliefs and culture of generations of people living in the same area through the years.
