An archeological team from Viet Nam Archaeology Institute found five stone axes believed to come from the 3,000-year-old Sa Huynh Culture at a Khue Bac communal house garden in the central city.
The communal house lies at the foot of the Ngu Hanh Son Mountains (Marble Mountains), 15km from the city centre.
Ho Tan Tuan, director of the city’s Heritage Management Centre, said yesterday that the team unearthed the axes on Wednesday while digging a second pit in the garden.
“The excavation, which began on May 16, provides more details on the appearance of the Sa Huynh Culture and the early Cham in the area,” Tuan said.
