A Shell Cemetery

By Linda Tancs

At first glance it might look like abandoned granite sidewalk slabs on a beach, but Thailand’s Shell Cemetery is actually thousands of shells stuck together to form a solid mass. At least 20 million years old, the cemetery came into being after limestone deposits in the water covered and fossilized gastropods, creating these prehistoric blocks. The site, reportedly one of only a handful in the world, is located just miles east of Ao Nang, a resort town in southern Thailand’s Krabi Province.
