via the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, 15 August 2022: A feature on Australia’s New Colombo Plan through Dr Nigel Chang’s work in Laos.
New Colombo Plan (NCP) Mobility Students have helped uncover evidence of human inhabitation as far back as 3,000 years or more in the Xieng Khouang Province in Laos.
Over three years, 38 students from James Cook University and students from the National University of Laos (NUoL) worked together on two major archaeological excavation sites at Wat Ban Vieng and Ban Ang Airport on the Plain of Jars. They worked alongside personnel from the Lao Department of National Heritage and local government representatives, with the uncovered artefacts now housed in the Xieng Khouang Provincial Museum.
