The rock art of Viking Cave

Tham Phrayanaga/Viking Cave

Stories by Alex is a video series featuring ancient civilisations around the world. In this episode, he visits Tham Phrayanaga or Viking Cave in southern Thailand, a rock art site with depictions of ships from many different cultures and highlights the vibrant maritime silk route in Southeast Asia. I have previously worked at this site before with Atthasit Sukkham, one of the people featured in this video. The Viking Cave is not normally open to public, so it’s a great way to see the site!
