Visiting Truong Luy archaeological site in the central province of Quang Ngai last weekend, the head of the European Commission delegation to Vietnam Sean Doyle suggested Vietnam to quickly have detailed project to preserve this heritage.
â€œWe commit to assist Quang Ngai province in connecting EU member countries to help the province further research and invest in this unique architectural work to heighten it to an international level,â€ said Ambassador Doyle after the visit, which had the participation of the ambassadors of France, Poland, Hungary, the UK, Greece and Italy.
The site is one of the country’s most important archaeological discoveries in a century, after five years of exploration and excavation conducted by foreign and local archaeologists at the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology.
The site was constructed carefully between 17th and 19th centuries with many materials and structures. The 130-km-long bastion stretches for 111km in Quang Ngai province.
