Thailand (formerly known as Siam) has been inhabited since the dawn of civilization in Asia. There are different points of view on the origin of the Thais. It is believed that around 4,500 years ago, the Thai people originated in the northwestern part of Sichuan Province in China and later moved to Thailand through southern China. They divided into two main groups. Some settled in the north and became the kingdom of "Lan Na", while others were further south and were later conquered by the Khmers and became the kingdom of "Sukhothai".
However, the history of the Thais has changed due to archaeological excavations in the village of Ban Chiang in Nong Khan district of Udon Taani province in the northeast. Evidence from archaeological finds of bronze metallurgy suggests that the Thai may have originated here in Thailand before spreading to various parts of Asia, including China.
The debate about the origins of the Thais is still inconclusive as many new theories have been proposed and even some argue that the Thais were originally of Austronesian rather than Mongoloid origin. Regardless of the outcome of the dispute, by the 13th century the Thais had already settled in southeast Asia.
