Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism in Binh Dinh Province in association with the University of Social Sciences and Humanities announced on December 6 results of excavations conducted at the Truong Xe relic site.
During the months of August and September this year, scientists excavated seven pits on a 200 square meter area in My Thang Commune of Phu My District in Binh Dinh Province, discovering three ancient stoves, many stone axes and several pottery items dating back 2,500 to 3,000 years. A particular piece of ancient bronze cinder could not be dated, remaining a mystery.
According to Associate professor Ph.D Lam Thi My Dung of the University of Social Sciences and Humanities under the National University in Hanoi, this is the last excavation at the Truong Xe relic site, as most of the relic has already been destroyed from illegal sand dredging of the area.
During earlier excavations, the relic had remained almost untouched. However, now there are only a few objects left with many items of pottery and stone showing that much damage has been caused to the relic.
