Paper long abstract:
The burial site of Oakaie is located few kilometers away from Nyaung'gan Bronze Age cemetery. Excavations conducted in Oakaie revealed two phases for inhumations. Based on a technological approach, this paper aims to characterize ceramics for each phase. Technological and stylistical comparisons between Oakaie and Nyaung'gan pottery assemblages can help defining the nature of relations between the two sites and refining Nyaung'gan chronology.
