Coffins thought to date back to Tran Dynasty

The coffins of a presumably powerful Tran Dynasty couple were recently excavated at the Ao Dinh archaeological site in the northern province of Ninh Binh’s Gia Vien District.

The grave contains one rectangular and one boat-shaped coffin, both of which are covered by two outer enclosures. The inner and outer coffins were carved from the fragrant ngoc am wood, which can resist insects, according to the archaeological team of Ninh Binh Museum.
