An unknown tribe has left valuable clues in the form of 'body jars' found around the Cardamom Mountains.

National Geographic said:

Perched in some cases on precarious cliff ledges, centuries-old log coffins—such as this one, pictured alongside researcher Nancy Beavan—and "body jars" are the only known traces of an unknown Cambodian tribe.

Waits at the window, wearing the face
That she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

So these are actual jars, not the big hollowed out boulders from the Plain of Jars.

DNA anaylsis will probably link these people to where they came from. Interesting custom.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Thanks Saru. Great article. Khmers are sure interesting. Brainstorming told me-Plains of Jars...

Seems to me that we have lot to learn about Khmer empire and people who lived there.
People who built Ankgor Wat deserves more researching and exploring. Since Ankgor Wat was first Hindu temple I wonder does this rituals have origin in India?
Btw recently I found out that Ankgor Wat is largest  religion temple in the world.

The anthropologists have a brazen cheek to say that they put their dead 160' high in the cliffs to protect the remains from poachers! They should have put them higher to protect them from the anthropologists!!!

That's wild taking a risk with your own life to protect a skeleton in a jar.

they must have been very sacred to the tribe if they would put there remains 160' up a cliff.

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong ?

Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near.
Look at him working. Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
What does he care ?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong ?

Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong ?

from the article

These sites have been found in various parts of the mountains including 160ft up a cliff presumably to prevent poachers from disturbing the remains.

Yeah, well probably not poachers, probably more like grave robbers or archeologists.  Good luck with that.

Sometimes there is a fine line between the 2.

You know what someone is going to come along and say pretty soon? That the jars were not placed UP the cliff, but down from the top, by the Aliens.
