Archeology helps introduce Vietnamese culture in Europe
German Archeologist Andreas Reinecke said introducing Vietnamâ€™s culture in Europe was the purpose of archeology projects he and his Vietnamese colleagues had been conducting for the past decade.
One of these projects is the investigation of O Chua Mound in Vinh Hung District in the southern province of Long An. The site has been excavated by the Archaeological Institute of non-European cultures (the German Archaeological Institute), Hanoi University of Social Sciences and Humanities and Long An Province Museum.
