The excavation proved that the site was inhabited by ancient Vietnamese people in the 10,000-8,000 BC era
Vietnamese archeologists unearthed 20,000-year-old artifacts dating back to the Stone Age late last week in northern Vietnam’s Ha Giang Province.
Experts at a recent workshop estimated that it would take 1-2 centuries to explore the UNESCO-recognized Thang Long Imperial Citadel in Hanoi in depth.
The recently announced preliminary result of the excavation at Con Moong and Diem caves in Thanh Hoa province yields a number of artifacts which shed light on ancient Vietnamese daily life and work.
Japanese archeology Ph.D holder Nishimura Masanari, who dedicated 23 years and made notable contributions to Vietnamese archeology, passed away in a road accident, aged 48, on his way from Hanoi to Hai Phong province to a new excavation site on June 9.
