Vietnamese archaeologists have found a 4,700-year-old skeleton in the southern province of Long An.
The skeleton, believed to be that of a 1.5 meter tall human being, was found burying in a grave measuring 0.5 meter wide by 2 meters long, according to the archaeologists from the Southern Social Sciences Institute.
The discovery was made when they were excavating a 100-square-meter area in the Lo Gach hamlet, Vinh Hung district.
