Next Friday, Prof. Lam Thi My Dung will be talking about her recent excavations at the SPAFA SESH (which I am running) on the Vuon Choi site in Hanoi, a prehistoric site that was used for around 1,500 years. The site has been an active area of investigation for Vietnamese archaeologists for the last 50 years. The talk is at 10 am Hanoi/Bangkok time on Facebook Live or on Zoom.
Since 1969, Archaeological relics have been discovered and researched at the Vuon Chuoi Complex of sites in the Hoai Duc District of Hanoi. So far, the results have indicated that Vuon Chuoi is a residence-burial complex developed continuously through the Dong Dau – Go Mun periods – Dong Son periods, from 3500 to 2000 BP. During 2019 and 2020, the Institute of Archaeology, Hanoi Department of Culture and Department of Archaeology and the University of Social Sciences and Humanities of the Viet Nam University conducted the excavations at the site for evaluation of its values for making a preservation plan. Join Professor Lam Thi My Dung and her team to understand why Vuon Chuoi is an important site for the prehistory of the Red River Delta of Northern Vietnam.
