Farmer discovers ancient dragon
THANH HOA — The Ho Dynasty Citadel's Heritage Preservation Centre recently received a green stone dragon head from a local person in Thanh Hoa province.
Vu Van Bang, who lives in Dong Minh Village, Vinh Phuc Commune, Vinh Loc District donated the artefact to the centre. He discovered it when he was doing farmwork inside the Ho Dynasty Citadel.
According to archaeologists, the dragon head dates back to the late 14th century and early 15th century (Tran and Ho dynasties). It is one of the few ancient dragon heads ever found in Thanh Hoa. The discovery is expected to help experts restore the heads of two stone dragons that were discovered in 1938 inside the citadel.-VNS
