Abstract: The An Son site is located in the middle reach of the Vam Co Dong River in Long An Province, southern Vietnam. The site is a large mound, 170 m in maximum diameter and 6 m higher than the surrounding plain. Excavation in 1997 at the eastern edge of the mound revealed a 4 m depth of cultural deposit. Four major cultural phases were identified, all belonging to the second millennium BC. Typological classification shows no clear change in pottery shape or decoration from Cultural Period 1 to 4.
