Bricks made by a Cham community a thousand years ago were found in the central province of Quang Ngai Sunday.

Farmers in Nghia Hiep Commune, Tu Nghia District, said they found hundreds of the bricks around a meter underneath their rice paddy fields.

The bricks were dark red, each 0.4 meters long, 0.1 meters thick and 0.2 meters wide.

Archeologists said the bricks might have been made by the Champa people for construction purposes during the ninth century.

Nguyen Dang Vu, director of Quang Ngai Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said the discovery proved that the area was once a prosperous and populated Cham area, according to a story posted by local newswire Dan Tri on Monday.
