Burial jar, pottery, Sa Huynh culture, Go Dua commune, Duy Xuyen district, Quang Nam province, c. 2,500 - 2,000 BP.

The practice of burying the deceased in ceramic jars was popular among the Sa Huynh communities. Burial jars are often large in size, including the major following types: Egg-shaped jars with covers, globe-shaped jars with angled shoulders, and cylinder jars with truncated conical covers. Human remains were rarely found in burial jars, but offerings, including domestic utensils, tools, weapons and jewelries are found most often. This burial custom was also popular among coastal and island people in other countries in the region and in the world.
