ANCIENT HUMAN bones have been unearthed along with clay pots believed to be up to 5,000 years old in Khao Na Wang Mi in Krabi's Muang district.



News of the discovery came as the Fine Arts Department Monday dispatched divers to inspect a sunken ship, possibly from World War II, about a kilometre off the coast of Chumphon’s Lang Suan district.
Following the discovery of the bones in a cliff area in tambon Thab Prik, the Phuket-based 15th Archaeology Office director Riam Phumpongphaet said the office would register the area as an ancient site to prevent further damage to the site.
The state gave a private company permission to carry out blasting but would no longer allow explosions.
