Jars in the Jungle

For CBC’s Dispatches, from Cambodia 

In 2003, wildlife rangers in Cambodia went looking for tigers. Instead, they found jars and coffins, centuries old, filled with human remains. Thirteen in all. Which made no sense. Cambodia’s practised cremation for hundreds of years. So who were these people? How’d they get there? It remained a mystery. Until now. Dispatches contributor Brian Calvert met up with an American scientist braving elephants and moths to learn the secret of the jars in the jungle.
