Archeologists in northern Vietnam have unearthed the skeleton of a young woman buried at least from 3,200-3,700 years ago, local media reported Monday.
The discovery is one of the oldest human remains found in archeological sites documenting the emergence of Vietnamese civilization during the Bronze Age in the Red River delta.
The skeleton, believed to be of a woman age 20-30 when she died, was discovered Sunday in a tomb being excavated in Phu Tho province, 80 kilometres west of Hanoi, according to the on-line newspaper VN Express.
