via Vietnam Plus, 05 March 2019:

Remnants of the foundations of a 10th century pagoda in Xuan Dai Mountain, Vinh Loc district, the central province of Thanh Hoa, have just been excavated.

The results have been announced recently by scientists from Ho Citadel Heritage Preservation Centre and the Vietnam Archaeology Institute.

At an excavation site on the mountainside behind Vinh Ninh Primary School, archaeologists discovered four layers of foundations constructed from large stones. Most of the stones remain in their original places, arranged in a line running east to west. Some of them fell out of line.
