Three skeletons thought to be the remains of ancient Vietnamese have been excavated in central Vietnam by local and Australian archeologists.
They are believed to date back 5,000 years.
Nguyen Tri Son, director of the Ha Tinh Museum, announced that the discovery of the three human skeletons was made at the Ru Diep archeological relic, located in Thach Ha District, Ha Tinh Province.
The remains were the latest finds from an excavation which archeologists from the Hanoi University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Ha Tinh Museum, and Australian National University initiated in mid-March, Son added.
The skeletons were unearthed on Thursday last week while the team was digging at a depth of 1.8 meters in an excavation pit measuring around seven square meters.
According to experts’ preliminary study, the skeletons have been around for roughly 5,000 years, Son noted.
