Archeologists in central Vietnam have  unearthed four burial jars believed to date back more than 2,000 years in the resort town of Hoi An of Quang Nam Province.

The excavation was carried out after Phan Vinh came across the relics while digging in his garden in Thanh Ha Ward, Hoi An Town on April 9.

The center said the jars belonged to the Sa Huynh civilization. The coffins were made at some point between 200 BC and 200 AD.

The center said it was extending its search in the area.


The Sa Huynh civilization, which flourished between 1000 BC and 200 AD in central and southern Vietnam, especially in Quang Nam and Quang Ngai Provinces, was first researched in 1909 by French archeologist M. Vinet.

Vinet unearthed around 200 burial jars in Quang Ngai's Duc Pho District. That site has been called "Dépot à Jarres Sa Huynh" (Sa Huynh Jar Depot) since.
