Seaboard regions of Thailand, noting differences and similarities in
production by site, region and chronology. This work also explores the

the persistent need for continued scientific archaeology. Other topics
include the use of electron microprobe to determine the constituent
mineral composition of clay fabrics.
Lavishly illustrated with over two hundred and fifty color plates, maps
and charts, the book is designed to appeal to a broad readership, interested
