Abstract: The archaeological site of Promtin Tai in Lopburi Province, central Thailand, is a multi-activity site occupied over the course of several hundred years. The site has been excavated successively by the author since 2004, yielding evidence for various activities ranging from habitation and mortuary rites to copper smelting and probably trading. The chronology of the site has been dated using stratigraphic information and cultural materials
absolute dating samples have been collected and sent for dating, but results have yet been reported from the laboratory. Archaeologically, the site represents a community with strong evidence of early long distance trade and cultural contact with India and developed from an Iron Age village to early historic town.
