HA NOI (VNS)— The provincial museum in southern An Giang Province was delighted on Thursday to receive three collections of pottery artefacts, four earrings, some weapons and many utensils dating from Dong Son Civilisation (2,500 years ago), donated by the Viet Heritage Company.

On a bumper day, the museum also received nine swords and coins dating from 1788-1801 from private collector Lam Zu Xenh of Quang Ngai central province.

This is the second time the company has donated artefacts to the museum. Museums in the southern provinces and cities of Can Tho, Tien Giang, Ben Tre, Tra Vinh and Dong Thap also received antiques from the company.-VNS
