Trinh Nang Chung, head of the excavation team, said two tombs have been excavated in the Khuoi Nang Cave.

Archaeologists said one of the tombs contained the bone fragments and teeth of an adult male, while the other held a child whose sex has yet to be determined. The grave of the adult also contained stone tools.
