Abstract: A complete re-examination has been conducted on skeletal material excavated from the site of Ban Chiang, in northeastern Thailand in 1974 and 1975. This paper describes and enumerates traumatic injuries to the 140 human skeletons examined. The natures and extents of such injuries were found to be consistent with accidental injury during the course of daily living, rather than attributable to warfare.
