Previously, scientists had only found relics from two dynasties at Thang Long Royal Citadel, but this year they had a major breakthrough when they were able to identify objects from several more dynasties at the historical site.

Archaeologists announced the news yesterday in Ha Noi while reviewing excavations from 2014.

Scientists have found architectural traces of the Ly (1009-1225), Tran (1225-1400), Le (1428-1527) and Nguyen (1802-1945) dynasties.

Vestiges of Later Le Dynasty were also discovered. Le dynasty began in 1428, with the coronation of Le Loi after he drove the Chinese Ming army from the country.
