A research project on ancient Vietnamese pottery has been presented the “Young Talent” award by the France – Vietnam Friendship Association (AAFV).

The PhD thesis research on archaeology was conducted by Beatrice Wisniewki, a postgraduate of the Paris-Sorbonne University.

At the January 23 award-presenting ceremony at the French School of Asian Studies, Patrice Cosaert, AAFV member and Chairman of the council of examiners, said the research helped enrich knowledge about Vietnam and popularise the country’s cultural development through various periods.

Wisniewki spent nine years in total on the research, which included visits to Vietnam and fact-finding tours to an archaeological excavation site in Duong Xa village, the northern province of Bac Ninh.

The AAFV’s award covers research projects on science, arts and other fields relating to Vietnam. Award winners also receive a cash prize of 3,000 EUR.-VNA
