Artefacts reveal striking facts about early humans in Vietnam

After five excavation campaigns at the Nguom Stone Roof site in Than Sa commune, Vo Nhai district, in Thai Nguyen province, the Vietnam Institute of Archaeology and the Thai Nguyen Provincial Museum have unearthed numerous artefacts dating back approximately 60,000 to 120,000 years.

The excavation campaign has been conducted since March 20. The artefacts uncovered are estimated to date around 60,000 to 120,000 years ago. This type of stone roof is unique in Vietnam, as it presents evidence of the earliest stone tool use and craftsmanship in its territory.

The archaeological research in Than Sa commune in general and specifically at the Nguom Stone Roof site has been ongoing since the 1980s. Through the artefacts discovered, experts have identified this as a significant archaeological site with immense importance for the cultural history of the nation.

The artefacts are now undergoing analysis and age determination using modern scientific and technological methods. Local authorities have deployed preservation methods and have planned further excavation activities for the years to come./.
