This article presents the results from archaeological investigations (1995-2003) of the late prehistoric site Lao Pako, near Vientiane city in Laos. Lao Pako was used around 1500 years ago as a ritual site where iron was produced and infants were buried with large amounts of ceramics and elaborate artefact assemblages. In this article it is argued that the findings at Lao Pako has the potential to change many of our previous assumptions of sites belonging to the late prehistoric period in Mainland Southeast Asia.
