By other translations it simply means “Land of the Thais.” The Thais call their country “Muang Thai,” which also means “Land of the Free.” They call themselves the “Khon Tha,” which means “free people.” “Siam” and “Siamese” are terms mainly used by foreigners.

Thailand lies at the converging point of the empires of China, India, Burma, the Khmers and Vietnam.

The Prescott Environmental Luminescence Laboratory is an interdisciplinary research facility that brings together research expertise from the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing and Institute for Mineral and Energy Resources.

The Prescott Environmental Luminescence Laboratory provides expertise in the real-time monitoring of radiation fields using radiation-sensitive optical fibres as distributed sensors, and investigations into the detection of prior exposure to radiation, measurements of environmental radiation dose-rates and radioisotope concentrations, and luminescence dosimetry.

The Laboratory space exceeds 200 m2, with individual booths and rooms for separate apparatus within a common darkroom, and services including adjustable intensity safe-light options (red and orange), reticulated vacuum, ultra-high purity nitrogen, cooling water and deionised water.

) and this is an apt name for this country where anything goes.

Presently, the Mon are settled in Myanmar and the Khmer in Cambodia, while the Tai set up their Thai city states, starting in northern Thailand, with three main cities: Lanna, Sukhothai, and Phayao.
