Vietnamese archeologists have unearthed many burial jars more than 3,000 years old along with other historic vestiges in the central province of Quang Ngai, the local museum said Wednesday.


Dr. Doan Ngoc Khoi, an expert from the Quang Ngai General Museum, said the jars belonged to the pre-Sa Huynh Culture, adding that it was the first time relics of the culture was discovered in a mountainous area.


Considered one of the most prominent ancient Vietnamese cultures of the Iron Age, Sa Huynh is believed to have flourished between 1000BC and 200AD in central and southern Vietnam.


Archeologists said they started excavating the site, located in the valley of the Tang River in Tre 1 Hamlet, Tay Tra District, more than a month ago.
