Vestiges of the ancient Vietnam discovered

Archaeologists from the National Centre for Social Sciences and Humanities' Archaeological Institute have discovered vestiges of the ancient Viet in the Giong Noi archaeological site in Ben Tre province after a month of excavations.
     Archaeologists found an 11cm-long stone axe, a 7cm-long and 2cm rectangular shaped chisel, two grinding tables, several potsherds and animal bones believed to date from the end of the Bronze Age and the beginning of the Iron Age (around the 1st millennion BCE). The artefacts showed that there were ancient Viet people who lived in Ben Tre 2,000 years ago.
