via Viet Nam Plus, 24 April 2019: This is the first time I’ve seen this type of burial – a wooden burial ‘jar’ topped with a bronze drum.

The southern province of Binh Duong on April 24 held an exhibition on archaeology and announced the Prime Minister’s decision to recognise the Phu Chanh wooden burial jar with a bronze drum served as cover as a national treasure.

The object dating back to the second to the first century BC (nearly 2,000 years ago) was excavated in Phu Chanh commune, Tan Uyen town, in 1998.

This is a new type of tomb, the first to be discovered in the archaeological history of Vietnam and the world.
