Default Ancient graves discovered in Quang Ngai

The central province of Quang Ngai has discovered ten ancient graves, dating back over 3,000 years.

After two months of archaeological excavations in Tra Tho commune, Tay Tra district, a large-scale burial site from the time of the Sa Huynh culture has been unearthed. Most of the people were buried in ceramic jars.

Dr. Doan Ngoc Khoi, a Quang Ngai museum official, said that this is the first time such artifacts have been discovered in Quang Ngai�s mountainous area. Previously, similar artifacts had been unearthed in river delta and coastal areas.
