Thousands of objects dating back to different dynasties and excavated in the northern province of Nam Dinh, along with photos illustrating the history of the area, are on display at the provincial museum as part of the celebration of the city of Nam Dinh’s 750th anniversary.

The objects, which include fragments of ceramics, pottery, and baked bricks, were found in more than 40 archaeological sites in the province. They date from the 1,000-year domination by northern invaders to the dynasties of Ly, Tran, Le and Nguyen. Objects excavated at the Tran Temple site are among the oldest and include traces of pottery ovens and round and square pillars.

  1. Re. your request to know who your readership is. I’m an ex SOAS student who has retained an interest in SEA archaeology after studying Indonesian language and culture.
    I really enjoy the blog. As well as keeping me up to date with what is happening there is usually something that is new to me. Why hadn’t I heard of Mt Sadahurip before?
    Thanks your blog is much appreciated.
