Ancient stone hoes found in Vietnam
Two stone hoes dating back around 2,000-3,000 years have been found in Long Thanh district, southern Dong Nai province (Vietnam). Farmer Chau Ba Ngan and his neighbours discovered the rectangle and trapezoid-shaped hoes while they were digging the foundation for a house. The hoes are 32-33 cm long, 2-4 cm thick and 7-8 cm wide. According to initial assessment of the Dong Nai Museum, the hoes were tools used by primitive people who inhabited Bien Hoa and the basin area of the Dong Nai river in the Stone Age.
