Vietnam's Largest ink slab discovered (September 08, 2003)

Ink slab -- VN
An ancient ink slab recently unearthed in Thanh Hoa Province is thought to be the biggest ever found in Vietnam.

The slab, made of blue stone, is 51cm deep and 70cm in diameter. Of its three compartments, the two smaller ones (33cm deep and 18cm diameter) would have been used to contain and grind ink.

Scientists believe it was made in the post-Le Dynasty. Its owner is Le Van Ung of Yen Hoach Village, Dong Tan Commune, Dong Son District, Thanh Hoa Province, who inherited the slab from his maternal grandfather. According to Mr Ung, it originated from Xuan Lan, Tho Xuan District, Thanh Hoa. He has just sold the slab for a Hanoian.
