Archive of news reports related to the archaeology and heritage of Thailand, located in the centre of Mainland Southeast Asia surrounded by Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. Thailand has a rich archaeological record and has been intensively research by both foreign and local archaeologists. Several archaeological sites are listed as Unesco World Heritage: the prehistoric site of Ban Chiang, as well as the historic capitals of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai. Archaeological work in Thailand is overseen by the Fine Arts Department, a division under the Ministry of Culture.
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 Thai, although when I am made aware of stories in this and other languages I try to index them.
