Title: Iron and cloth across the Bay of Bengal: new data from Tha Kae, central Thailand
Date: 2011
Source: Antiquity
Abstract: An important group of spindle whorls found at Tha Kae in Thailand carries traces suggesting the use of iron spindles, and includes an unusual type of whorl shaped like a door knob. The author explores the implied contacts reaching into south China, but is also able to add a probable link with India in the early first millennium AD, well in advance of the better known Dvaravati period (sixth-thirteenth centuries AD).
