The Jar Lady, aka Nancy Beavan, exhibits her discoveries at the National Museum in Phnom Penh for the next three months in an exhibition titled “Living in the Shadow of Angkor”. I've visited a few of these ancient jar sites within the Cardamom Mountains and they are pretty inaccessible and highly unusual. Nancy has spent ten years researching the ancient burial rituals with jars and wooden coffins in locations dotted around the Cardamom region. Here's a photo of Nick Ray and myself at the official opening, taken by Sotheavy Nou.
