Mass of ancient tombs found in central Vietnam
Archaeologists have unearthed relics of 31 ancient tombs at a site in the central coastal province of Thua Thien - Hue after a two month excavation.

The tomb designs were typical of the Sa Huynh culture, dating back to over 2,000 years and popular from the central to southern regions of Vietnam, said Dr. Vu Quoc Hien, Deputy Director of the Vietnam Historic Museum.

The dead were buried with a number of personal belongings such as necklaces and earrings made of either glass or agate.
