Ancient artefacts discovered in Vietnam
Archaeologists have unearthed more than 200 objects and a thick stratum of ash, animal bones and mollusc shells at the Rach Nui archaeological site in the Vietnamese southern province of Long An.
This is the second effort made by the archaeologists from the provincial museum and the Vietnam History Museum at the Rach Nui archaeological site just 20 km south of Ho Chi Minh City. Long An has the thickest strata of artefacts of this kind to date in Vietnam.
The findings included a shouldered stone axe, rings made from animal bone, and a large number of earthenware pots, bowls, dishes and cups decorated with different designs.
