Abstract: This paper presents a range of characteristic features found in the Iron Age ceramics discovered in Samon Valley burial sites in the course of excavations carried out by the French Archaeological Mission in Myanmar between 2001 and 2006. We attempt to define some specific characteristics of Upper Burma ceramics (recurrent forms, use of "can vases"), in order to propose a provisional typology of the Ywa Htin Iron Age potteries and a more precise Metal Age chronology. We also propose additional elements relating to ceramic technology, clays and decoration (the context in which discoveries were made, funerary rituals, see Pautreau <i>et al.</i> 2001b, 2004, 2005a, 2005b, 2006, 2007a, Pautreau dir. 2007).
