... have come up with theories as to what these jars were used for and the local Lao people have another theory. The archaeologist and UNESCO believe these jars were used as burial sites. Some evidence of teeth and other bones have been found to help prove this theory. The jars site we visited also has a cave, which is believed to have been where bodies were cremated and then something from them were put into a jar.
