The 21st Congress of the Indo-Pacific Prehistory Association (IPPA) has opened in the former imperial city of Hue in central Thua Thien-Hue province, bringing together 700 archeologists from 35 countries, including the host Vietnam.

The six-day congress will continue until September 28, with several separate topic meetings as well as visits to relics built by the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945) in Hue.

IPPA Secretary-General Ian Lilley said the congress would be a chance for archeologists around the world to gain a deeper understanding of the progress of archeology in the Indo-Pacific region.
