43 new archaeological sites discovered in Vietnam
A survey has revealed 43 sites of archaeological potential, with most dating back to the Neolithic, in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum (Vietnam). Jointly conducted by Vietnam’s Institute of Archaeology and the provincial Cultural Service between May and August 2003, the survey has led to the discovery of hundreds of artefacts of high historical value. Jewellery pieces and a silica axe are cited by archaeologists as examples of designs so far unique in Vietnam.
The survey’s findings have provided background for the province’s map of archaeological sites, compiled by the Institute of Archaeology.
