Ten ancient tombs discovered in Vietnam
Archaeologists have discovered 10 ancient tombs still in remarkably good state in the central province of Nghe An (Vietnam). These tombs are believed to be between 12,000 and 15,000 years old, based on the findings such as bracelets and necklaces made of bronze, which were typical of the ancient Vietnamese culture of the Bronze Age, said the head of the archaeologist team working on the site, Dr. Bui Vinh.
He added that the findings are quite rare as only a very few ancient tombs in such a good state containing such a large quantity of valuable artifacts have been discovered so far in Vietnam. Excavations are continuing at the site in hope of discovering more objects related to ancient Vietnamese Culture, Vinh said
