In a first-time discovery for Southeast Asia, jars containing ancient jewellery have been unearthed in Dien Ban district of central Quang Nam province.

Twenty-two jars, each one-metre high, were found to contain around 7,000 artefacts, including stone earrings, and 3,000 necklaces made of gold and tiny, bird-shaped precious stones.

The pieces are believed to date back over 2,000 years, according to the Vietnamese and German archaeologists on the 100 sq.m site.

The excavation revealed cultural and trade exchanges between local people and merchants once took place here, leading to the Sa Huynh culture.

Sa Huynh culture belonged to a late prehistoric metal age society on the central coast of Viet Nam, with a distinct regional Bronze Age, dating back to the first millennium BC. — VNS
