Feasting in Southeast Asia

University of Hawai'i Press

Several exploratory survey trips to Laos revealed relatively poorly developed feasting traditions apparently due to very low levels of food production and wealth. However, a number of ritual structures and pilgrimage sites were observed with associated feasting areas and events. These had clear archaeological consequences in their material patterns. The broader question of the benefits that such activities served was more problematic. Remnant long houses were observed but conditions did not seem to correspond to traditional contexts.

Keywords:   Laos, hill tribes, ritual structures, pilgrimage sites, corporate groups, long houses
