Archive of news reports related to the archaeology and heritage of Lao PDR. Lao PDR, or Laos, is a mountainous landlocked country bordering China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar. It is home to three archaeologically significant Unesco World Heritage sites: the formal royal capital of Luang Prabang, the ancient Hindu complex of Vat Phou, and the Plain of Jars.
The news reports indexed below usually link to external sites that were active at the time of posting; sometimes websites may be temporarily down or may have reorganised their underlying architecture or have even closed down – in these cases the links may not be available. Most of the news articles archived are in English; this is largely because I do not have a working competency in Lao, although when I am made aware of stories in this and other languages I try to index them.
