Tombs unearthed in Binh Dinh Province (July 24, 2003)

Archaeologists last week unearthed 50 tombs believed to have belonged to the Sa Huynh, one of the country's earliest civilisations, in the southern province of Binh Dinh.

Researchers have dated the round, earthenware tombs to between 200 BC and 100 AD. Buried in an area of about 300sq.m, the brown tombs still bear the meticulous hand-made engravings of floral motifs.

"The shape is a typical feature of the Sa Huynh tombs," a researcher from the Hanoi-based Vietnam History Museum said.

The excavation, conducted by archaeologists from the history museum and Binh Dinh Museum, took place among the Dong Cuom relics in Tang Quan Nam Commune.

Inside the researchers found ancient hunting tools - such as knives, axes, short swords - ceramics and jewellery made of colourful crystals and stone.

Archaeologists are now petitioning for the State to dub the site a nationally-ranked historical relic.
