The central province of Nghe An has nearly 1,300 ancient historical relics, which with passing of years are now in a state of disrepair, decay and disintegration.

Very little is known about the famous and priceless Con Diep Quynh Van archaeological relic in Quynh Van commune in Quynh Luu District, discovered in 1930 by a French archaeologist. Many artifacts dating back 6,000-7,000 years were found in excavations during the 1960s. Local people organize a market (Van market) on the site since 1974.
