Comprehensive Evidence For Neolithic Tombs Discovered In Vietnam
According to Dr Trinh Hoang Hiep from the Vietnam Institute of Archaeology, who has worked to uncover the secrets of the province's Con Co Ngua relic site, the unearthed tombstones and grave offerings have shed light on a little-known period in the history of the land.
The presence of pottery and stone items, along with the position of uncovered remains, offers valuable information about the Neolithic Era in Vietnam and the region, he stated.
A report by the institute published in early 2013 said experts had discovered some 70 ancient tombs, together with bones, teeth and other evidence of animals such as turtles, water buffalo, elk, deer, fish, scallops and oysters.
Dating back to at least 5,140-5,520 BC, the Con Co Ngua site - found in Ha Linh commune, Ha Trung district - is one of the most extensive relics left behind by the Da But civilisation in the country, alongside ancient sites in the northern province of Ninh Binh.
