Ethnic people in a Quang Nam Province commune discovered a trove of ancient relics they later threw away or gave to children as toys.
The Co Tu minority people were digging the foundation of a new home in a resettlement area in Nam Giang District’s Ta Binh ward when they struck a trove of pottery pieces, vases, strings and pots buried under the ground.

Most of the relics were thrown away, some agate beads given to children as toys.

A group of archaeologists from the Sa Huynh Culture Museum recently spent hours excavating the site, unearthing relics they believe belonged to the Sa Huynh civilization.
