Two tombs containing coffins estimated to be 1,000 years old were discovered recently in the central province of Quang Tri ’s Gio Linh district.

Made from 2m tree trunks, the coffins contain bones along with some coins and terracotta jars and dishes.

An official from the Quang Tri Museum said the tombs were possibly buried in the 11 th century and the remains may belong to people of the Kinh ethnic group. He said the museum would retain the materials for further research./.
