A total of 216 ancient tombs dating back to Sa Huynh culture were found buried together at the Con Rang relics in Huong Tra district of central Thua Thien-Hue province.
The result of the third excavation is the biggest archaeological discovery about the number of such tombs found in the central region so far, said archaeologists from the Vietnam Institute of Archaeology and the provincial Revolutionary-Historical Museum.
Director of the Thua Thien Hue Revolutionary-Historical Museum Van Dinh Thanh said that the tombs with four different shapes were buried in a vertical position with different distances and depths.
Archaeologists found more than 1,300 artefacts made of iron, bronze, stone, glass and porcelain at the two previous excavations in the Con Rang relics.
