HA GIANG (VNS)— Artifacts left by prehistoric men from the late Palaeolithic Age have been discovered at the Sua Can Ty archaeological site in Quan Ba District, in the northern mountainous province of Ha Giang.

The findings include nearly 200 relics, mostly work tools made from stone.

Archaeologist Nguyen Truong Dong from the Viet Nam Institute of Archaeology said the tools were typical of the Son Vi civilisation (20,000 – 12,000 BC) in the late Palaeolithic Age in Viet Nam.

Research showed that prehistoric men had lived at the Sua Can Ty site, he added.

Beginning in early October, the excavation spanned more than 100sq.m and is 1.1m deep.

The Sua Can Ty site is located on the Dong Van Stone Plateau, an ancient area containing a number of relic sites from various periods throughout Viet Nam's history. — VNA/VNS
