A range of exciting periods in Vietnamese history are reflected in a new exhibition of antiquities at Nam Dinh Museum, under the theme of Quintessence of Antiquities in the Red River Delta.

The collection of 1,000 artefacts, including 750 found in Viet Nam and the rest collected abroad, are on display in the northern city of Nam Dinh thanks to contributions from private collectors throughout the country.

The valuable artefacts include pottery objects, Buddhist statues and patterns made from terra cotta feature a range of historical landmarks, especially focusing on Tran dynasty (1225-1400), as Nam Dinh was the capital of the country during this period.
