The Plain of Jars, Laos, 500 BCE to 500 CE. Hewn stone jars vary from 1 to 3 metres over 90 sites. During the Vietnam and the Secret Wars in Cambodia and Laos, the U.S. dropped an incredible 260 million bombs on neutral Laos, more than all of World War II. Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) has killed at least 20,000 since the war, mostly children attracted to the toy-like clusters. (Archaeologists are inhibited in research, of course. rw)
