Nakorn Thai

Thai ceramics were among the first Southeast Asian wares to be seriously studied, starting with WA Graham’s 1922 article “Pottery in Siam” in the Journal of the Siam Society. The field only gained momentum in the 1960s following Charles Nelson Spinks’ important contributions on Tai pottery and in the 1970s from the discovery of the Prasat Ban Phluang temple site.

Nakorn Thai

Nakorn Thai, located east of Sukhothai, is a small kiln site with six kilns observed by the Thai-Adelaide project in 1984, although its actual date of discovery is unknown. Its primary product is unglazed stonewares and the site probably ran from the late 13th to the 14th centuries.
