Ancient artifacts including 16 clay jars have been found in a field in the village of Among in Tha Sawang sub-district of Surin in Thailand’s north eastern region.

She said that the artifacts did not reveal themselves at first but the rains exposed one jar that were observed by relatives.

Locals thought it might be 300 years old.

The Fine Arts department were called in and the area was turned into an archaeological site with 16 jars and a wealth of other artifacts located all in the same spot, reported Daily News

They think it is evidence of a community that lived there more than 1,000 years ago.
