4,700-year-old skeleton found in Vietnam

Vietnamese archaeologists have found a 4,700-year-old skeleton in the southern province of Long An (Vietnam). The skeleton, believed to be that of a 1.5 meter tall human being, was found buried in a grave measuring 0.5 meter wide by 2 meters long, according to the archaeologists from the Southern Social Sciences Institute.
     The discovery was made when they were excavating a 100-square-meter area in the Lo Gach hamlet, Vinh Hung district. Nguyen Khanh Trung Kien, vice director of the institute's Archaeology center, said the skeleton may date back to 2,700 BCE. The scientists also found other items, including working tools, pieces of fish and animal bones.
