Sépultures des âges des Métaux dans la vallée de la Samon, Myanmar

Abstract : A programme of exploration financed by the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs Archaeological Commission in association with the Department of Archaeology (Ministry of Culture of Myanmar), studies burials of Iron Age in the Samon Valley. The work start in 2001. Funeral practices have been studied from grave goods and bones remains by the method of field anthropology and many analyses of ceramic vessels and metallic artefacts have been carried out. These preliminary findings, albeit restricted in number, prompt a few interesting comparisons between funeral practices and cultural aspects of the Bronze and Iron Ages. The gaps of protohistoric Burma are huge. The research presented here is but the result of a ground-clearing exercise.
