[Extract] METAL at Nong Nor was found predorninantly as jewellery. Field identifications indicated that bronze bangles were by far the most common items. Notable exceptions were two caches of socketed copper implements, possibly arrowheads or chisels, and several tin artefacts, including bangles and a single earring. Bronze was also used in the repair of broken stone bangles, as has been observed at Ban Na Di (Maddin and Weng 1984).
