Diggers unearth stone-age artifacts


QUANG NGAI Archaeologists have unearthed a horde of artifacts in central Quang Ngai Province, which they believe belonged to the Na Nieu-Tra Phong new stone age anaphase, and date back 4,000-4,500 years.

The antiquities including stone axes, graters, oval earrings, a copper trivet, and ceramic items were found at a depth of between 40 and 60cm in Na Nieu valley, Tra Phong Commune, Tra Bong District, about 100km northwest of the provincial town.

Archaeologists said that the artifacts found at five excavation sites are related to the Bien Ho Culture in the Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) and earlier Sa Huynh and Long Thanh relics found in the south of central Viet Nam.
