A team of international scientists study the longest rampart in Southeast Asia, located in Vietnamâ€™s Quang Ngai Province.
The fortified wall is considered the longest and largest scale rampart in the country and also the entire Southeast Asian region.
The 200-km rampart is believed to have been built before the 17th century by people and troops under the leadership of Le Van Duyet, a military dignitary of the Nguyen Dynasty.
