A grave complex from the time of prehistory has been found at the rice archaeological site of Dong Trong Cave in Van Don, Quang Ninh Province.

Archaeologists from the Archaeological Institute collected more than 2,000 stone relics such as axes, graters, quadrilateral axes, skillful necklaces and bracelets.

Notably, some of the newly-found cord-marking ceramics had patterns that are typical of the Ha Long Culture.
