The excavation started in June, 2007 at two sites, including Cau Tu 1 and Cau Tu 2 temples. The two sites are about 300m apart as the crow flies. Archaeologists determined that there was a large residential building in the Ly dynasty, from the 12th century at both sites.

Unfortunately, the article doesn’t say anything much else about the finds from the excavation, or what the excavation did for understanding life during the Ly Dynasty. You can read the article here.
