Ancient brass drum found in Dak Lak (December 04, 2003)


An ancient brass drum has recently discovered by a local in Dac Mam town, Krong No district, Dak Lak province.

The drum has a diameter of 80cm. Its face is still intact while its barrel is broken into many pieces so its height can not be determined.

According to designs on the drum, a provincial historian estimated that it was made over 2,000 years.

This is the tenth ancient drum found in Dak Lak so far.
