Baan Prasat Archaeological site

It is approximately about 45 kilometres from Nakhon Ratchasima city. It is located at Amphoe Non Sung. On the highway No.2 leading to Phimai for 45 kilometres, then turn left for 2 kilometres. There is a big gate on the entrance from Highway.

According to the exploration by the Division of Archaeology back in 1977, Baan Prasat is an enclosed site of irregular shape with surrounding moat and mound measuring 700×450 meters. The area slopes southward with its highest point rising some 4 meters from the surrounding rice fields. The site is believed to be an agricultural community of prehistoric period in the southern Northeast with its own typical civilization differing from that of Ban Chiang, Udon Thani Province, which dated back some 500-1,000 years retrospectively. Many things of the different period are excavated from the excavation pits.
