On August 25, 2017, Mr. Pok Vanna is a villager, who lives Kok Doung village, is willing to hand over two ancient potteries to APSARA Authority for preserving as the national heritage after he has kept them for 15 years.

Mr. Vanna said that he never intended to sell these two artifacts, despite the ancient belief that there could be bad things happening in the family when the artifacts were kept in the house. On the other hand, he saw news about people taking away artifacts and give to APSARA for preserving as national heritage. So, he decided to hand over these two potteries to APSARA.

Regarding these two potteries, Dr. Ea Darath, APSARA Researcher, claims that these potteries were actually produced in Angkor period during the 9th to 13th century. Although these potteries lost some of the marking characteristics because they were buried in the ground for a long time and have been saturated with salt, we can still see some points as same as the ones in Angkor period, but slightly different dates. A green laminate was produced between 12th and 10th century, located at Phnom Kulen while the other one could be produced in 11th to 13th century.
