Exhibition examines influence of Dong Son bronze culture
Viet Nam News, 19 November 2014

The Hanoi-based National Museum of History opened an exhibition of artifacts from Vietnam’s Dong Son Civilization (1,000BC to 100AD) on Tuesday.
The show features the fruits of 90 years of archeological research and excavation that began with the discovery of a trove of artifacts in Dong Son Village in 1924.
The exhibited objects, including bronze drums, working tools and household goods, weapons, music instruments and jewelry, offer a deep insight into this ancient society that dates back more than 2,000 years.
The museum also displays objects it borrowed from the Hanoi Museum and provincial museums in Hung Yen, Lao Cai, Nghe An, Thanh Hoa and Yen Bai, to create a comprehensive picture of life in the Dong Son Culture.
