Early human remains found in Vietnam

Vietnamese and French archaeologists have discovered a paleontological site dating back to more than 100,000 years ago in Da Den Cave in the northern province of Tuyen Quang (Vietnam). Quan Van Dung, director of the Tuyen Quang Museum, said December 24 that the scientists found hundreds of items, including bones and teeth of pigs, long-tailed macaques, rhinos, deer, orangutans, and other animals.
     They also found fossil vestiges proving the existence of human beings in Tuyen Quang Province since the dawn of mankind, he added. His museum is making plans to protect the site and coordinating with the Vietnamese and foreign scientists to continue excavations, he added. In Tuyen Quang, archaeologists have discovered thousands of items in nearly 10 sites dating back to prehistoric times. Da Den Cave houses the largest number of them.
