via Deutche Welle, 05 February 2018: Tourist steals bricks from Ayutthaya, suffers an ‘unpeaceful’ life, returns them by mail.
An envelope containing three bricks believed to be centuries old and a note in Thai was sent to the Tourism Authority of Thailand last week, said Panupong Paengkul, a tourism official in the ancient city of Ayutthaya where the bricks were reportedly stolen from. “The note indicated that the bricks should be returned to any temple in Ayutthaya because the sender had not lived a peaceful life since, but it didn’t elaborate on what had really happened,” Panupong said. “The note was written in Thai. I suspect it was translated by Google,” he added, declining to reveal the name and nationality of the sender.

The significance of the Bujang Valley in history has been heightened by a latest sensational laboratory report on four sections of a newly excavated jetty complex – dating them each to 487 BC. This means that the port settlement in Kedah thrived 2,500 years ago, making it the earliest and oldest among the ancient kingdoms of South-east Asia. The civilisation lived until the 13th century AD. fz.com has learnt that the tests were conducted by the Korea Basic Science Institute in South Korea, through an Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dating technique. The results were received by the Centre for Global Archaeological Research (CGAR) of Universiti Sains Malaysia two weeks ago.
