Archaeologists unearthed ceramic in Quang Nam, Viet Nam (April 16, 2003)


An additional nineteen jar tombs have been found in a recent archaeological excavation in central Quang Nam province's Dien Ban district.

It is the second time archaeologists unearthed ceramic, glass and stone pieces, golden-colour metal jewelry believed to be linked with Sa Huynh culture.

In the first excavation last October, archaeologists discovered nine jar tombs, containing ashes, broken bone pieces, and valuable personal effects such as axes, hoes, big and small knives, swords, manual working tools, and weapons dating back to the late Sa Huynh culture.

Some of the excavated jars were similar to those found in Hau Xa and An Bang communes of ancient Hoi An town while others have the same shapes as those discovered in Mau Hoa, Duy Trung and Duy Xuyen communes of Quang Nam province.

Sa Huynh culture was a late-prehistoric metal age society on the central coast of Vienam. Sa Huynh culture shows a distinct regional bronze Age culture, dating back to the first millennium BC. (VNA)
