Also the grave goods accompanying the dead, adorned with stone, shell or bronze jewels, were arranged ritually: ceramic vessels near the head and/or between the legs, animal offerings near the legs. A number of chronological “markers” are present in the graves: particularly noteworthy are two tin-bronze armlets, each composed of a hundred very thin separate rings, on the wrists of the inhumed in Burial 7 (NT3) (see Fig. 10).
Recurrent burial items are small dish on high, truncated-cone pedestal, globular Hole Mouth Jars (HMJ) (similar to the Buddhist ‘Alms bowls’) with or without a short, flaring pedestal, usually decorated with a band of Thick Red Burnished Slip (TRBS) under the lip and on the shoulder, as well as the animal offerings (pig or deer limbs), the terracotta spindle-whorls, as well as shell and stone jewellery (Fig. 13).
Noticeable the inhumation of a single individual (B4-NT3) accompanied by several, crashed vessels (Fig. 14). Once reassembled, the potshards formed eleven vessels, including three small jars, two dishes-on-stand, one pedestalled bowl and an exceptional set formed by a ‘Hole-mouth jar’ associated to a large pear-shaped pot with a very wide mouth and a much smaller hole at the bottom. We tend to regard these vases, arranged one on top of the other, as a cooking device, possibly for steaming, the first one of this kind found so far in Central Thailand (Fig. 15).
