Ancient masterpieces unearthed (September 01, 2003)


The Central Highlands province of Kon Tum has discovered 43 sites of archaeological potential with most dating back to the New Stone Age, about 3,000 years ago.

The findings were made in a recent survey jointly conducted by the Institute of Archaeology and the provincial Cultural Service from May to August and have formed the basis of the institute’s recently-compiled map on archaeological sites in the province.

Archaeologists said the survey has helped unearth hundreds of artifacts of great historic value and the most unique designs ever found in Vietnam, including an axe made of silica and various jewellery pieces.
