Archaeologists hope to recover artefacts and reconstruct up to 3,000 years of history at the Vinh Yen archaeological site in the Khanh Hoa Province of Vietnam. The central province would certainly be home to many artefacts from Champa.
Archaeologist to search for 3,000-year-old relics
Thanh Nien News, 12 Feb 2009
Archeologists hope to find traces of Vietnamâ€™s ancient inhabitants during a six month excavation beginning February 20.
The excavation of a 2,000-squaremeter area at the Vinh Yen archaeological site in the south-central province of Khanh Hoa will be the second such exploration of the site, said the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
Last August, the first archaeological dig at the site unearthed artifacts up to 3,000 years old, including 10 ceramic and rock structures, eight tombs and more than 400 stone, copper and terracotta items.
